Article
Objective: There is no information about surfing after hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA). We did a retrospective study aiming to evaluate the safety and feasibility to resume surfing-an extreme sport with high-impact physical activity-after HRA. Design: Retrospective case series. Setting: Specialist Orthopaedic Group, Mater Hospital Sydney, N...

Aims The effect of pelvic tilt (PT) and sagittal balance in hips with pincer-type femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) with acetabular retroversion (AR) is controversial. It is unclear if patients with AR have a rotational abnormality of the iliac wing. Therefore, we asked: are parameters for sagittal balance, and is rotation of the iliac wing, diffe...
Article
Developmental dysplasia of the hip with a high dislocation may lead to severe hip pain and a marked shortening. Nerve palsy rates following THA in dysplastic hips have been reported as being higher by ten times or more compared to the general population. We report a new technique to perform THA in high congenital dislocations. Between 2013 and 2015...
Article
Complex acetabular reconstruction sometimes requires the use of a custom-made triflange acetabular component (CTAC). In this article we describe the surgical technique to achieve its implantation through the direct anterior approach (DAA). Meanwhile we report on our first aMace® CTAC placement in revision total hip arthroplasty through the DAA. Mos...
Article
Background: Multiple Ephiphyseal Dysplasia (MED) is a rare autosomal dominant skeletal dysplasia that causes deformation of the epiphysis of the involved joints. The hips are invariably affected and symptoms due to incapacitating early onset degenerative hip disease often begin between the second and fourth decade of life. Literature regarding the...

Introduction Hip fractures in the elderly pose an increasing problem in society. In the elderly, a bipolar hemiarthroplasty (HA) remains the treatment of choice in case of hip fractures related to osteoporosis. However, due to an ongoing osteoporosis in this age group, a periprosthetic femoral fracture and a fracture of the unresurfaced acetabulum...

When bunionette deformities are not responding to conservative treatment, several surgical procedures are available. Recently, minimal invasive techniques have been proposed with good results. We present our results of a strictly percutaneous 5th metatarsal osteotomy to correct the deformity with bandage after care. We present a retrospective revie...
Article
Background: Oxidized zirconium (OxZr) is produced by thermally driven oxidization creating an oxidized surface with the properties of a ceramic at the top of the Zr metal substrate. OxZr is much harder and has a lower coefficient of friction than cobalt-chrome (CoCr), both leading to better wear characteristics. We evaluated and compared damage to...

Purpose Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)-substituting total knee arthroplasty (TKA) designs were introduced to avoid paradoxical roll forward of the femur and to optimize knee kinematics. The aim of this in vitro study was to investigate post-cam function and contact mechanics and relate it to knee kinematics during squatting in eight contemporary...

Purpose: Restoration of correct alignment is one of the main objectives of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). However, the influence of residual malalignment on clinical and functional outcomes is currently uncertain. This study was therefore undertaken to ascertain its influence in patients undergoing TKA for varus osteoarthritis of the knee. Method...

Letter to the editor regarding: Variations of the intra-articular portion of the long head of the biceps tendon: a classification of embryologically explained variations.
Article
Aseptic loosening of the tibial component remains a major cause of failure in total knee arthroplasty and may be related, directly or indirectly, to micromotion. Therefore, good fixation of the tibial component is a prerequisite to achieve long-term success of the implant. Cementing technique is one of the factors that play a role in this respect....
Article
Application of prosthesis components during knee arthroplasty surgery involves impacting the femoral component using an impaction device and a heavy mallet. This could damage the component and may therefore be of concern to knee surgeons. Using a drop tower with a set-up that mimics the impaction generated clinically when a surgeon hits the femoral...
Article
Although the intra-articular portion of the long head of the biceps (LHB) usually runs free, different types of fusions with the inferior surface of the capsule are known to be possible. Anatomic variations of this part of the LHB have been previously described and were nearly always considered to be innocent. Out of 2 populations of 1500 arthrosco...
