A 25-year-old man presented with chronic bone and soft tissue infection of the right thigh following resection and radiation of epithelioid sarcoma. Multiple revisions and debridement procedures had failed to control the infection and left him unable to ambulate. We describe a modified Van Nes rotationplasty using a constrained, prosthetic hip between the tibia and pelvis following femur resection. With 18 months of follow-up, the patient was able to walk with a prosthetic device without evidence of recurrent infection.

The primary anti-rotational stability is critical to preventing cup tilting failure following revision total hip arthroplasty, but is frequently compromised by severe ischial bone loss. A novel techni...
Intra-abdominal and pelvic abscesses can develop because of multiple etiologies. Typically, these abscesses are managed via a combination of medical (antibiotics) and surgical (drainage) interventions...
Our study seeks to describe our surgical technique of the use of a tissue expander and a pelvic sling in order to perform high-dose pelvic irradiation without incurring radiation toxicity to the small...
To evaluate the impact of spinopelvic parameters and hip contracture on change in the pelvic tilt (PT) after Total hip arthroplasty (THA).
While performing a primary TKA in consecutive patients, a constrained insert may be necessary when adequate stability and soft tissue balance are not obtained. In this retrospective study,...

Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
Surgical reconstruction of a joint to relieve pain or restore motion.
Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).
The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
Tumors or cancer of the pelvic region.
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...
