  • After hip-replacement surgery, medication use decreases

    A new study, published November 15, in the journal Pain provides information on the trajectories of prescription drug use before and after hip-replacement surgery—total hip arthroplasty (THA), one of the most common types of joint replacement surgery. Hip-replacement surgery is commonly followed by long-term reductions in the use of prescription drugs for pain and insomnia.

  • Debridement cited as better initial option to treat infection after reverse shoulder arthroplasty

    Results from a retrospective, multicenter study by French researchers that investigated treatment options for infection after reverse shoulder arthroplasty supported the use of debridement as a first-line treatment, but noted this option had a 54% healing rate.

  • Maging identifies cartilage regeneration in long-distance runners

    Using a mobile MRI truck, researchers followed runners for 4,500 kilometers through Europe to study the physical limits and adaptation of athletes over a 64-day period, according to a study presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

  • Study supports efficacy of closed reduction, percutaneous fixation of crescent-fracture dislocations

    Recently published data highlight the safety and efficacy of closed reduction and percutaneous screw fixation for the treatment of crescent fracture-dislocation of the sacroiliac joint and indicate satisfactory function and radiographic outcomes with the procedure.

  • Why treating shoulder pain in baseball pitchers and other throwing athletes is so difficult

    “Despite increasing medical knowledge, treating shoulder pain in baseball pitchers and other throwing athletes remains one of the most challenging tasks in sports medicine.


    “The results of treatment are not as predictable as the patient, family, trainer, coach and doctor would like to think,” according to an article in the journal Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinics of North America.”

  • MRI showed imaging abnormalities but good clinical results with ACI

    CHICAGO — MRI appearance of autologous chondrocyte implantation showed imaging abnormalities at 65.8-month follow-up; however, autologous chondrocyte implantation was still found to produce good clinical results, according to data presented at the International Cartilage Repair Society Annual Meeting, here.

  • An Anterior-based Muscle-sparing Approach to THA

    A 66-year-old female who has acetabular protrusio and end-stage osteoarthritis of the right hip undergoes total hip arthroplasty through the ABMSparing approach. According to the authors, this approach avoids the complications of wound healing that can occur with an approach that crosses the hip flexion crease, as well as avoids cutting muscle.

  • What Is the Future of Mobile-bearing Acetabular Components?

    Mobile-bearing acetabular components are a relatively new design option for total hip arthroplasty. The goal of these components, say the manufacturers, is to allow a better fit with the patient’s anatomy, provide greater mobility, and create a stable hip that’s less prone to dislocation.

  • Getting the perfect fit for artificial hips

    When a patient receives a new hip, it is usually adjusted only approximately to leg length. Greater accuracy requires a more precise measuring process as well as adjustable implants. Now, a new type of measurement method coupled with a modular implant should allow orthopedic surgeons to precisely calibrate leg length after the operation so it matches its original length[…]

  • EOS imaging obtains FDA approval for hipEOS, the first 3D stereoradiographic planning software for hip arthroplasty

    EOS imaging, the pioneer in orthopaedic 2D/3D imaging, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved hipEOS, a 3D hip arthroplasty planning software based on EOS stereo-radiographic 2D/3D imaging. hipEOS is the first offering of a software portfolio associated with the EOS imaging system. Developed by OneFit medical, an EOS imaging group company, the software enables surgeons to perform, using EOS unique stereo-radiographic 2D/3D low dose images, pre-surgical planning including hip implant selection and virtual positioning in functional, weight-bearing 3D. The software takes full advantage of the bias-free, real size 3D patient anatomical information obtained from the EOS exam to help physicians define implant size and visualize pre-operatively the restoration expected from a total hip arthroplasty prior to surgery. hipEOS received a CE Mark in March 2014.
