Because periprosthetic bone loss impacts revision total hip arthroplasties and subsequent patient recovery, it is important to understand the consequences of stress shielding. We characterized bone loss attributed to stress shielding by investigating the influence of patient activity and demographics on reductions in cortical bone cross-sectional area, bone(More)
The standard technique for monitoring bone mineral in hip arthroplasty has been dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). The accuracy of DEXA in the cortical bone adjacent to femoral components has not been established. This study evaluated bone mineral in the cortical bone adjacent to the femoral component comparing DEXA and ashing. Seven pairs of human(More)
When testing the effects of a femoral component on cortical bone following total hip arthroplasty, the patient's implanted femur is often compared with his/her contralateral nonimplanted femur, with differences attributed to the femoral component. However, if normal anatomical differences exist between bilateral femurs, they need to be quantified in order(More)
