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 fractures.

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 ar...
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.
Using a new ceramic head with a titanium adapter sleeve offers the possibility of maintaining a well fixed stem when conducting cup revision of a total hip arthroplasty. The aim of this study is to te...
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...
The management of periprosthetic femoral fractures following hip arthroplasty is challenging, and the choice between osteosynthesis of the fracture and the revision of the prosthesis is still matter o...
The main goal prospectively evaluate bone mineral density adjacent to the femoral component and femoral bone remodeling of two different designs: CORAIL impaction broach titanium stem comp...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate survivorship of the femoral stem at 5 years.
A Retrospective-Prospective Study of REDAPT Revision Femoral System Modular Stem is a post-market, retrospective-prospective, multi-center, single arm, consecutive series study design to p...
In this randomised study, the migration of a specific cemented titanium femoral stem will be compared with a similar cemented cobalt-chromium stem using Roentgen stereogrammetric analysis ...
This is a prospective, single arm, sequential enrolment study to collect relevant clinical and radiological data in approximately 26 subjects, at one site in Australia, who have been impla...
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.
Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
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...
