The geriatric population represents a rapidly growing segment of society with prolonged life expectancies and more active lifestyles. Many of these patients have already undergone primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) and are presenting with aseptic loosening, polyethylene wear, osteolysis, or periprosthetic fractures. Therefore, the demand for hip revision procedures is expected to grow. Currently, there are many modular implant options available for use in complicated revision THA. Early results of modular femoral revision systems are promising for the treatment of the deficient femur in complex revision THA. The objective of this study was to evaluate component survivorship of a modular femoral revision system in revision THA. A retrospective review was conducted using electronic health records of patients who underwent revision THA performed by 1 of 3 surgeon investigators from 2010 through 2014. The authors included all patients who underwent a revision THA using a specific modular femoral revision system. The authors evaluated component survivorship and time to re-revision THA. Fifty-one revision THAs were included. Seven patients required a second revision THA (13.7%; 95% confidence interval, 4%-23%). Mean time to re-revision THA was 4.88±3.9 months. Kaplan-Meier survivorship using re-revision for any reason was 86.3% at 60 months. This study showed excellent component survivorship of the specific modular femoral revision system in revision THA.

Femoral stem fracture is a rare and morbid complication after total hip arthroplasty (THA). There currently exists a paucity of reports regarding cementless non-modular, titanium, femoral stem fractur...
To our knowledge, no previous studies have compared periprosthetic bone remodeling around monoblock versus modular tapered fluted titanium stems with different stem length and thickness.
Metal on Metal Hip arthroplasty was commonly used until the last decade. However Hip Arthroplasty registries of many countries showed increased revision rates of MOM Hips - these high rates of revisio...
Adverse reactions to metal debris after total hip arthroplasty are an increasing concern. Metal debris is released from the metal-on-metal articulation itself as well as from the head-neck taper. Ther...
Modular Dual Mobility (MDM) constructs in total hip arthroplasty (THA) offer increased hip stability compared with constrained liners, without compromising hip range of motion. The purpose of this stu...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate survivorship of the femoral stem at 5 years.

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.
Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.
Disease involving the femoral nerve. The femoral nerve may be injured by ISCHEMIA (e.g., in association with DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES), nerve compression, trauma, COLLAGEN DISEASES, and other disease processes. Clinical features include MUSCLE WEAKNESS or PARALYSIS of hip flexion and knee extension, ATROPHY of the QUADRICEPS MUSCLE, reduced or absent patellar reflex, and impaired sensation over the anterior and medial thigh.
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.

A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
