Evaluation of the Wear of Vitamin E Treated Polyethylene Components in Primary THA Using RSA

2015-05-03 15:25:44 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The specific aim of this proposed study is to conduct a prospective RSA clinical study at Massachusetts General Hospital involving 50 patients receiving primary total hip replacements. All patients will receive the vitamin E treated polyethylene acetabular inserts. Short-term femoral head penetration and long-term steady state wear of the polyethylene will be measured using both RSA and Martell analysis techniques. Stability of the acetabular and femoral components will be measured in all patients using RSA analysis. The stability of the cemented femoral stems will be compared to the stability of the cementless femoral components as well as to historic data in the literature. In addition, all patients will complete a self-administered questionnaire to assess the clinical outcome of the surgery and patient satisfaction.

Does knee replacement surgery for osteoarthritis improve survival? The jury is still out.

The relation of knee replacement (KR) surgery to all-cause mortality has not been well established owing to potential biases in previous studies. Thus, we aimed to examine the relation of KR to mortal...

Projecting Lifetime Risk of Symptomatic Knee Osteoarthritis and Total Knee Replacement in Individuals Sustaining a Complete Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear in Early Adulthood.

To estimate the lifetime risk of knee osteoarthritis (OA) and total knee replacement (TKR) in persons sustaining ACL tear by age 25.

Advances in understanding cartilage remodeling.

Cartilage remodeling is currently among the most popular topics in osteoarthritis research. Remodeling includes removal of the existing cartilage and replacement by neo-cartilage. As a loss of balance...
