Investigation of community-acquired Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia in Northern Denmark found diabetes to be strongly associated with an increased risk of CA-SAB, and the finding remained robust according to gender, age, comorbidity level, and characteristics of patients with diabetes.
Total hip replacement after femoral neck fractures in elderly patients : Results of 8,577 fractures reported to the Norwegian Arthroplasty Register
THA in fracture patients showed good results, but there was an increased risk of early dislocations and periprosthetic fractures compared to OA patients.


Early attempts at hip arthroplasty--1700s to 1950s.
The history of the early hip arthroplasty procedures for hip arthritis that preceded Charley total hip ar Throplasty is reviewed.
The epidemiology of total hip replacement in the Netherlands and Sweden
The predicted annual number of total hip replacements by the year 2020 will increase by at least one fourth in Sweden and almost one half in The Netherlands because of changes in the age-profile and size of the population.
Projecting the need for hip replacement over the next three decades: influence of changing demography and threshold for surgery
A sharp rise in hip replacements will be needed to satisfy needs in the UK population over the next 30 years, and will be substantially higher in men than women.

Patient-related risk factors for early revision of total hip replacements. A population register-based case-control study of 674 revised hips.
A set of patient-related factors associated with poor THR prognosis was identified and increased overall revision risk was found among patients using systemic steroids or local pulmonary steroids, and in female patients of working-age doing heavy work.
Geographic variations in the rates of elective total hip and knee arthroplasties among Medicare beneficiaries in the United States.
The variations in the rates of elective total hip and total knee arthroplasties for 1988 in the United States were analyzed to determine whether the rates correlated with the numbers of surgeons, and both operations were most common in the seventy to seventy-four-year age-group.
International variation in hip replacement rates
The reported differences in hip replacement rates in OECD countries are substantial and may be due to various causes, including different coding systems, country-specific differences in the healthcare system, in total expenditure on health per capita, in the population age structure, and in different indication criteria for THR.
Rates and Outcomes of Primary and Revision Total Hip Replacement in the United States Medicare Population
Analysis of United States Medicare population data showed that the rates of total hip replacement increased with age up to the age of seventy-five to seventy-nine years and that blacks had a significantly lower rate of total hips replacement than whites.
Changing incidence of primary total hip arthroplasty and total knee arthroplasty for primary osteoarthritis.
The incidence of THA is increasing, and the incidence of TKA is increasing at a greater rate, although this was not uniform across all age groups.
Geography and the debate over Medicare reform.
A new approach to Medicare reform is proposed based on the principles of shared decision making and the promotion of centers of medical excellence and it is suggested that this proposal be tested in a major demonstration project.
