BACKGROUND There has been controversy whether methylmethacrylate precoating of the cemented femoral stem is a solution for aseptic loosening or rather contributes to increased failure rates in cemented total hip arthroplasties. METHODS On a retrospective basis, we analyzed 76 primary hybrid total hip arthroplasties from 63 patients with precoated,(More)
PURPOSE In early prosthetic joint infection after hip arthroplasty, debridement with prosthesis retention may be performed for implant salvage, but the reported success rates are highly variable. Hence we reviewed the outcome of radical debridement and retention of prosthesis using established diagnostic criteria and surgical procedures in relation to(More)
Distal metatarsal osteotomy and the modified McBride procedure have each been used for the treatment of mild to moderate hallux valgus. However, few studies have compared the results of these 2 procedures for mild to moderate hallux valgus. The purpose of the present study was to compare the results of distal chevron osteotomy and the modified McBride(More)
A retrospective analysis of 63 primary total hip arthroplasty cases was done using repeated computed tomography scans to evaluate the pelvic osteolytic lesions in early stage. The progression rate of osteolysis of hips with small osteolytic volume less than 766.97 mm(3) in initial CT was 85.82 mm(3)/year, and that of hips with osteolysis more than 766.97(More)
