Discussion. We previously reported bone and fat levels some I 2 times higher than those after systemic injection (Hoddinott et al 1990) and have now extended our sampling to provide a pharmacokinetic profile over the important 24 hours after operation (Fig. 1). The results indicate that the regional intravenous administration of a single 750 mg dose of cefuroxime gave satisfactory haematoma levels for at least 20 hours in all our patients. The main reservoir for the antibiotic during this…

Trochanteric osteotomy for revision total hip arthroplasty. 97% union rate using a comprehensive approach.
TLDR
In light of the improvement in surgical exposure, high rate of union of the trochanters, and limited number of complications, trochanteric osteotomy is recommended for most revision THA.
Long-term results of revision total hip replacement. A follow-up report.
TLDR
There is an increased failure rate with longer follow-up of revision total hip replacement, and that progressive radiolucency at an interface indicates a poor prognosis for the arthroplasty.
Revision total hip arthroplasty.
TLDR
Although 90 per cent of the patients thought that their condition had improved, the high incidence of roentgenographic signs of probable loosening of a component is of serious concern.
Results of interlocking wire trochanteric reattachment and technique refinements to prevent complications following total hip arthroplasty.
TLDR
Improved technique reduced the separation and migration rate from 4.5% to 2.3% following primary surgery and a more secure three-wire technique with two vertical wires has been used in 36 revision operations since July 1981 with no incidence of migration.
