MicroPort Orthopedics (MPO) is conducting this post market clinical follow-up (PMCF) study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of its total hip arthroplasty (THA) components marketed in th...
MicroPort Orthopedics (MPO) is conducting this study to investigate the primary stability of its PROFEMUR® Preserve Femoral Components using radiostereometric analysis (RSA). RSA allows p...
A prospective , observational, multi-centre, cohort study of the G7™ Acetabular System used with compatible femoral stems in patients with degenerative disease of the hip. The study wil...
MicroPort Orthopedics (MPO) is conducting this post market clinical follow-up (PMCF) study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of its total hip arthroplasty (THA) and resurfacing component...
In recent years, short femoral stems have been introduced. Short stems are designed based on traditional stems with good clinical results. The assumed benefit of short stems is that they a...
Restoring the original femoral offset is desirable for total hip replacements as it preserves the original muscle lever arm and soft tissue tensions. This can be achieved through lateralised stems, ho...
Malalignment of the femoral stem in total hip arthroplasty (THA) can detrimentally affect outcome. Poor preparation of the femur intraoperatively is an important cause of stem malalignment.
Cementless femoral stems are currently used in revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) with the surgeon choosing between various fixation modes. The outcomes are good in the medium term; however, some f...
The authors report on a case of modular femoral neck fracture which appeared 21 months after revision of acetabular component. The revision surgery was performed 8 years after the primary total hip ...
Lipoma of the femoral fossa is uncommon. Often asymptomatic, femoral lipoma may growth within the circumscribed space of the femoral fossa causing pain and discomfort. A worsening pain caused by a lip...
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.
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.
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).
The vein accompanying the femoral artery in the same sheath; it is a continuation of the popliteal vein and becomes the external iliac vein.
