    The HipXpert System (HipXpert) allows the surgeon and surgical team to be aware of major anatomical and component considerations prior to surgery and it enables the surgeon to accomplish the task of performing THA with precision and efficiency.

    The results of a study presented today at the Annual European Congress of Rheumatology (EULAR 2018) demonstrate that among individuals with radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA), decreased physical performance and greater structural disease severity are associated with a higher risk of experiencing depressive symptoms.

    For patients undergoing hip fracture fixation, general anesthesia (GA) is associated with increased 90-day mortality compared with spinal anesthesia (SA), according to a study presented at the 2018 World Congress on Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, held from April 19 to 21 in New York City.

    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.

    Researchers searched the Medline databases from January 1990 to January 2014 and retrieved 19 articles reporting on the management of posttraumatic arthritis of the hip following acetabular fractures with the use of late total hip arthroplasty (THA), as well as articles where acetabular fractures were treated with early THA. In all, the researchers assessed THA outcomes following acetabular fracture in 654 patients.

  • 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.

    “Most contemporary total hip arthroplasties that dislocate are within the Lewinnek safe zone,” Matthew P. Abdel, MD, said during his presentation at the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons Annual Meeting. “Cup position for some patients certainly lies outside this safe zone. Most importantly, new technologies will need better targets to hit prior to them being clinically relevant or economically feasible.”
