More prominent hip abductor quality decreased the 5-year chance for poor useful results and the 2-year chance for tibiofemoral ligament harm intensifying among specific patients with knee osteoarthritis, as per discoveries displayed at the ACR/ARHP 2018 Annual Meeting.
In a study of 3,956 Caucasian women aged ≥ 65 years researchers found that having one fracture significantly increases a patient’s risk of fractures in other locations.
If you have the misfortune to break a hip, try not to delay getting it repaired.
A recent observational study conducted in Canada revealed that the risk of death rises as do complications in situations where hip repairs were delayed more than 48 hours.
Authors gauged the long-term outcome, regarding survival and radiological results, of a cemented straight stem when used for revision total hip arthroplasty (THA). They also compared these results to the results of the same stem in primary THA.
The role of total hip arthroplasty through the direct anterior approach in femoral neck fracture and factors affecting the outcome
Researchers sought to compare the clinical outcomes, perioperative complications, and mortality of total hip arthroplasty (THA) through the direct anterior approach (DAA) between femoral neck fractures (FNF) and elective cases. For patients presenting an FNF, with excellent functional outcomes, less surgery-related complications and lower short- and long-term mortality, a credible and safe option could be THA through the DAA than those reported in the literature. The survival rate could be potentially increased with the early intervention and perioperative stabilization of the patients with FNF.
