Background Restoration of limb length is important in total hip arthroplasty. Clinical evaluation and preoperative templating establish the intended lengthening. The purpose of this study was to assess whether digital fluoroscopic navigation (DF) improved the accuracy of planned lengthening in direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty (DAA-TH...

Background When clinically indicated, the choice of performing a total knee arthroplasty (TKA) vs a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) is dictated by patient and surgeon preferences. Increased understanding of surgical morbidity may enhance this shared decision-making process. This study compared 30-day risk-adjusted outcomes in TKA vs UKA us...

Introduction Optimal treatment of femoral neck fractures (FNF) remains debated. Recent data suggests total hip arthroplasty (THA) confers improved functional outcomes compared to hemiarthroplasty (HA) in active patients. However, temporal trends in complication rates between these treatments lacks study. Methods The National Surgical Quality Impro...

... In UKA, unlike TKA, only one compartment of the knee undergoes surgical replacement. As such, patients undergoing UKA tend to have lower perioperative blood loss and lower incidence of blood transfusions, as compared to their counterparts undergoing TKA surgery [7]. Nonetheless, a significant proportion of patients undergoing UKA still require blood transfusion, with blood transfusion rates as high as 7.4% being reported in several studies [8,9]. ...
... The choice between these two techniques is still debated. HA is generally preferred in older patients, because of lower surgical time, blood loss and dislocation rate [1][2][3]. Moreover, the risk of early revision due to acetabular wear related to HA could be considered irrelevant in the very elderly, considering their low functional demand [4]. ...
