An end-result analysis is presented of thirty-nine mold arthroplasties performed at the Massachusetts General Hospital between 1945 and 1965 in thirty-eight consecutive private patients for arthritisExpand
Rates and Outcomes of Primary and Revision Total Hip Replacement in the United States Medicare Population
Background: Information on the epidemiology of primary total hip replacement is limited, and we are not aware of any reports on the epidemiology of revision total hip replacement. The objective ofExpand
Contact pressures in the human hip joint measured in vivo.
The pressures on human articular cartilage have been measured in vivo. An instrumented femoral head prosthesis that telemeters interarticular pressure at 10 discrete locations 253 times per secondExpand
The Etiology of Osteoarthritis of the Hip
The etiology of osteoarthritis of the hip has long been considered secondary (eg, to congenital or developmental deformities) or primary (presuming some underlying abnormality of articularExpand
Incidence Rates of Dislocation, Pulmonary Embolism, and Deep Infection During the First Six Months After Elective Total Hip Replacement
Background: The lengths of acute hospital stays following total hip replacement have diminished substantially in recent years. As a result, a greater proportion of complications occurs followingExpand
Proximal placement of the acetabular component in total hip arthroplasty. A long-term follow-up study.
A retrospective review was undertaken of thirty-seven hips (thirty-four patients) that had had a complex cemented total hip arthroplasty. In these hips, circumstances had necessitated that the centerExpand
Improved cementing techniques and femoral component loosening in young patients with hip arthroplasty. A 12-year radiographic review.
To assess the effect of improved methods of femoral cementing on the loosening rates in young patients, we reviewed 50 'second-generation' cemented hip arthroplasties in 44 patients aged 50 years orExpand
The Harris hip score: comparison of patient self-report with surgeon assessment.
Outcome evaluations are of primary concern in contemporary medical practice. Questionnaires are being used increasingly to provide input data for such outcomes evaluation. This study comprised 50Expand
SYMPOSIUM: PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL CLOSED MEETING OF THE INTERNATIONAL HIP SOCIETY The Etiology of Osteoarthritis of the Hip An Integrated Mechanical Concept
The etiology of osteoarthritis of the hip has long been considered secondary (eg, to congenital or developmental deformities) or primary (presuming some underlying abnormality of articularExpand
Periprosthetic bone loss in total hip arthroplasty. Polyethylene wear debris and the concept of the effective joint space.
Thirty-four hips in which there had been prosthetic replacement were selected for study because of the presence of linear (diffuse) or lytic (localized) areas of periprosthetic bone loss. In allExpand
