There are no data regarding the efficacy and safety of minimally invasive hip arthroplasty technique performed by community practice orthopedists. The early clinical and radiographic results of primary total hip arthroplasty using a minimally invasive anterior approach to the hip performed on a fracture table were studied. Two hundred thirty-one consecutive(More)
The postoperative leg-length discrepancy was determined radiographically for a consecutive series of 351 patients (408 hips) who underwent bilateral or unilateral primary total hip replacement using a single method of leg-length equalization by preoperative planning with overlay templates. The method of equalization was performed by a measurement of the(More)
BACKGROUND Femoral continuous peripheral nerve blocks (CPNBs) provide effective analgesia after TKA but have been associated with quadriceps weakness and delayed ambulation. A promising alternative is adductor canal CPNB that delivers a primarily sensory blockade; however, the differential effects of these two techniques on functional outcomes after TKA are(More)
BACKGROUND Patient-specific femoral and tibial cutting blocks produced with use of data from preoperative computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans have been employed recently to optimize component alignment in total knee arthroplasty. We report the results of a randomized controlled trial in which CT scans were used to compare(More)
The prevalence of dislocation of a total hip replacement during the first 3 postoperative months was determined for a series of 315 patients who underwent a unilateral primary total hip operation. All operations were performed by 1 surgeon using a standardized posterior approach with a complete capsulectomy. All of the patients had a femoral component made(More)
A randomized, prospective study of the use of allogeneic blood was performed in a consecutive series of patients who underwent primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and had autologous transfusion either from one unit of predonated autologous blood or from postoperative unwashed blood salvage. In this study, 83 patients (88 knees) were included, with 47(More)
Fungal infections associated with prosthetic joints are uncommon. The first case report describes a woman with insidious onset of a candidal infection of a revision total knee arthroplasty. After multiple joint debridements and prolonged antibacterial and antifungal therapy, she had a successful reimplantation of a knee prosthesis. The second case report(More)
The tissues surrounding 65 cemented and 36 cementless total joint replacements undergoing revision were characterised for cell types by immunohistochemistry and for cytokine expression by in situ hybridisation. We identified three distinct groups of revised implants: loose implants with ballooning radiological osteolysis, loose implants without osteolysis,(More)
A multicenter retrospective review was performed analyzing 1081 primary total hip replacements in 944 patients using the Harris Galante-I cementless acetabular component with screw fixation. All patients were followed up for a minimum of 5 years with a mean followup of 81 months. Linear polyethylene wear averaged 0.11 mm/year (range, 0-0.86 mm/year). Pelvic(More)
