Bipolar Versus Unipolar Hemiarthroplasty for Patients With a Hip Fracture

2014-08-26 22:45:03 | BioPortfolio


Insertion of a hemiarthroplasty is a well established treatment for a dislocated medial hip fracture in elderly patients. The purpose of this study is to compare unipolar and bipolar hemiarthroplasty as a treatment for patients aged 70 years or above with a dislocated medial femoral neck fracture. The study is prospective and randomised, and will be based on questionnaires, clinical examinations, registration of complications and radiographic evaluation at follow up at 3 months, 1 and 3 years postoperatively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).

Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.

Fractures due to the strain caused by repetitive exercise. They are thought to arise from a combination of MUSCLE FATIGUE and bone failure, and occur in situations where BONE REMODELING predominates over repair. The most common sites of stress fractures are the METATARSUS; FIBULA; TIBIA; and FEMORAL NECK.

A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.

Metabolic disorder associated with fractures of the femoral neck, vertebrae, and distal forearm. It occurs commonly in women within 15-20 years after menopause, and is caused by factors associated with menopause including estrogen deficiency.
