BACKGROUND The use of tranexamic acid (TXA) in primary total hip arthroplasty is well documented. However, considering the potential side effects, including deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, the ideal method of providing TXA to patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty remains controversial. The objective of this trial was to assess the efficacy(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of our study was to investigate the clinical results and serum metal ion levels in a cohort of patients who received total hip arthroplasty (THA) with ceramic-on-metal (CoM) bearings. METHODS From September 2009 to December 2011, 78 patients (89 hips) who underwent THA with CoM bearings were involved in this study. Harris Hip Score,(More)
We evaluated the clinical and radiographic results of 67 (64 patients) cementless Duraloc-300 cups for young active patients after a mean follow-up period of 6.2 years. The preoperative mean Harris hip score improved from 46.24 to 96.5 points at 5 years. The survivorship of the cup, using radiographically confirmed aseptic loosening as the end point, was(More)
There has been much debate and controversy about the routine use of antibiotic-impregnated bone cement in primary total joint arthroplasty. The purpose of this study was to undertake a meta-analysis to determine whether the use of antibiotic-impregnated bone cement would reduce the incidence of infection after primary total joint arthroplasty.
