Mid-term data show that today’s dual mobility constructs can provide excellent stability and range of motion in primary and revision total hip arthroplasty when patients are at a higher risk for dislocation. Modern implant designs have successfully mitigated several major failure mechanisms in older systems.
Surgical techniques to treat recurrent shoulder instability are effective but prone to non-union of bone grafts held in place by screws alone. A study published online by The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery suggests that a new technique – borrowing a design used for centuries in Chinese architecture and woodworking – can provide an effective approach to shoulder stabilization.
Your child comes home from a game, practice or the playground and is limping and complaining about ankle pain. Could something be sprained, strained or —even worse — broken?
The advent of ankle arthroscopy has eliminated the need for open arthrotomy for a number of disorders ranging from loose bodies, soft tissue impingement, osteochondral lesions, and even some arthrodesis. The critical question in regard to the patient described above is to determine if the lesion is simple impingement or osteoarthritis.
