After an allogenic bone-marrow transplant, avascular necrosis of the femoral head may affect young adults, producing destructive lesions which require hip replacement. We have reviewed 27 consecutive such total hip arthroplasties (THA) at a minimal follow-up of two years. Of these, 20 were primary operations for Ficat (1985) stage-III and stage-IV lesions, and seven were revisions after the failure of previous surgery. The median age at operation was 30 years (17.5 to 44). The prostheses had a…

Total hip arthroplasty in very young bone marrow transplant patients.

Despite the history of severe hematopoietic conditions requiring ABMT, these very young patients do appear to have improved pain and function following primary THA with short-term follow-up.

Osteonecrosis after Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplantation

This review retrospectively reviewed 77 patients with osteonecrosis and concluded thatSeptic loosening affecting this specific population has to be considered a serious event.

Intertrochanteric osteotomy for avascular necrosis of the head of the femur. Survival probability of two different methods.

Compared with different types of intertrochanteric osteotomy for avascular necrosis of the hip, rotational osteotomy was associated with a high incidence of complications and even flexion osteotomy in cases with small areas of necrosis provides only temporary benefit.

Outcomes of total hip arthroplasty for osteonecrosis of the hip: systematic review and meta-analysis

Findings found acceptable and sustainable outcomes for total hip arthroplasty for hip osteonecrosis and specific risk factors associated with oste onecrosis increased the risk for unfavorable outcomes.

Intertrochanteric osteotomy for avascular necrosis of the head of the femur

For all osteotomies there was a high correlation between the size of the necrotic area and the incidence of failure, which also correlated with the preoperative Ficat and Steinberg stages.

Outcomes of shoulder arthroplasty in haematopoietic stem cell transplant patients

Patients with previous HSCT who undergo SA can expect to have good pain relief, range of motion improvement, subjective satisfaction, and low peri-operative complication rate with appropriate choice of implant, however, surgeons must inform patients about realistic post-operative outcomes given the high post- operative mortality rate.

Aseptic necrosis of both femoral heads as first symptom of chronic myelogenous leukemia

This is the first case of an adult patient showing aseptic necrosis of femoral heads caused by leukostasis, leading to the diagnosis of Chronic myelogenous leukemia in a 24-year-old woman.

What Risks are Associated with Primary THA in Recipients of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation?

With appropriate medical evaluation and comanagement by transplant specialists, carefully selected patients with hematopoietic stem cell transplants may undergo elective primary THA, although complications do occur in this relatively fragile patient population.



Avascular necrosis of the femoral head secondary to corticosteroid therapy for graft-versus-host disease after marrow transplantation: effective therapy with hip arthroplasty.

Of 50 patients surviving 2 years or longer after HLA-identical sibling bone marrow transplantation for haematological malignancy or severe aplastic anaemia, five developed avascular necrosis of the

Ten-year survivorship of cemented ceramic-ceramic total hip prosthesis.

Age, appearance of a two- or three-zone demarcation at the intermediate follow-up evaluation, and outer diameter of the acetabular component were the major parameters influencing the results.

A comparison of osteonecrosis and osteoarthritis patients following total hip arthroplasty. A long-term follow-up study.

No significant differences in long-term complications were found in the ON and OA populations, but a much higher death rate was found in ON patients (24%) as compared to OA patients (15%) (significant at p less than .07).

Alumina-alumina hip replacement in patients younger than 50 years old.

Alumina-alumina friction is an extremely interesting phenomenon in young patients, and could be related to the low wear debris production.

Alumina-on-alumina hip replacement. Results and survivorship in young patients.

In these young patients, the results seem better with alumina-on-alumina hips than with other varieties, possibly because of their remarkably low wear.

Long-term results of total hip arthroplasty for osteonecrosis of the femoral head. A comparison with osteoarthritis.

Most of the hips with component loosening showed histologic evidence of extensive bone necrosis within the resected femoral head, which seems to be mainly caused by extensive necrosis in ON, a high-risk disease in terms of the long-term durability of THA.

Long-term follow-up of total hip replacement in patients with avascular necrosis.

Despite the inferior long-term results of total hip replacement performed for advanced osteonecrosis, it is felt the procedure should not be abandoned for patients in their fifth decade of life or older because it provides a painless, functional hip more consistently than does any other form of arthroplasty.

Total hip arthroplasties in patients younger than 45 years. A nine- to ten-year follow-up study.

As in the first study, the best results were obtained in patients with inflammatory collagen disease aged from 30 to 45 years, and technique was a primary determinant of success.

Functional results of hip arthroplasty with acrylic prosthesis.

Late results in 243 arthroplasties with an acrylic prosthesis for traumatic or osteoarthritic conditions are reported, and deterioration of the functional results appear to be caused by bone absorption around the Judet prosthesis and the consequent loosening of the prosthesis.
