Most dislocated hips placed within ‘safe zone’ during THA, study finds
DALLAS — During their minimum 2-year follow-up, researchers here reported a 1.9% rate of subsequent dislocation after total hip arthroplasty in a contemporary practice and noted 58% of these cases had an acetabular socket position within the Lewinnek safe zone.
Researchers found better cup, stem survival after early THA
Patients who underwent early total hip arthroplasty experienced better 10-year cup and stem survival compared with patients who underwent late total hip arthroplasty, according to study results.
New techniques shorten recovery time in hip, knee replacements
It wasn't too long ago that patients who underwent a hip replacement or knee surgery spent nearly a week in the hospital and months in rehab.
Today, more patients find themselves at home just days after surgery and back at work within weeks.
Results show link between pain sensitization and chronic pain after TKRL
Widespread preoperative pain sensitization may be associated with chronic pain after total knee replacement, according to results published in Osteoarthritis and Cartilage.
Sports Injuries Strike Again
Sports are a great way for kids to get exercise and have fun. But sometimes young athletes get hurt.
Many sports injuries are mild and heal on their own. Others — such as knee ligament tears — may be more serious and require surgery.
Athletes who have had surgery to repair knee ligament tears are more likely to experience another knee ligament tear than uninjured athletes, according to a recent study.
