Bipolar Versus Unipolar Hemiarthroplasty for Patients With a Hip Fracture

2014-08-27 03:45:03 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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).

A partial joint replacement in which only one surface of the joint is replaced with a PROSTHESIS.

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.

Hip deformity in which the femoral neck leans forward resulting in a decrease in the angle between femoral neck and its shaft. It may be congenital often syndromic, acquired, or developmental.
