Gait Variability in Women With Hip Osteoarthritis Before and After Total Hip Replacement: A Prospective Cohort Study

Conclusion Gait variability improved after total hip arthroplasty due to improved hip function. However, trunk variability was insufficient compared with that in healthy individuals.

ConclusionBimeniscal replacement by an allograft and/or substitute provides good short-term functional and anatomical outcomes. Nevertheless, this procedure is warranted only in highly selected patients.Level of evidenceIV, retrospective study.

AbstractPurposeTo compare the clinical and laboratory outcomes of intra-articular injections of culture-expanded bone-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with or without platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to intra-articular corticosteroid injections for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA).MethodsForty-seven patients with radiographic and symptomatic knee OA were randomized into three groups for intra-articular injections: autologous bone marrow-derived culture-expanded MSCs (n = 16); autologous bone marrow-derived culture-expanded MSCs + PRP (n = 14); and corticosteroid (n =...

Abstract Femoroacetabular impingement is a cause of hip pain in young adults as a result of premature dynamic contact between the femur and acetabulum that occurs within the physiological range of hip motion. Diagnosis is made by patient history, clinical examination and radiographic findings. Cross-sectional imaging with computed tomography and magnetic resonance arthrography may be necessary in selected patients. Femoroacetabular impingement can be treated non-operatively with physiotherapist-led conservative care including analgesia and intra-articular steroid injections. Arthroscopic hip surgery aiming to rest...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the clinical and radiographic outcomes of clavicular hook plate fixation with and without coracoclavicular (CC) tape augmentation for the treatment of acute unstable AC dislocation. METHODS: We treated 47 patients (31 men and 16 women; mean age: 47 years (range, 21-81)) with unstable acute AC dislocations (Rockwood III-V) and divided them into two groups according to the treatment modality, with hook plate fixation (hook plate group) or hook plate plus CC tape augmentation (combined group). We assessed radiologic findings, such as subacromial osteolysis...

Surgical treatment involves resecting these “bone stops”. In the literature, these osteophytic lesions are more common than cartilage lesions, which suggests they may occur beforehand. The aim...

ConclusionFasinumab provided improvements in OA pain and function, even in those benefitting little from previous analgesics. The observed benefit ‐to‐risk relationship favors further clinical development to explore the lowest doses of fasinumab in patients with knee or hip OA.

This study examines midterm outcomes of BHR MoM THA compared to oxidised zirconium total hip arthroplasty (THA). METHODS: A retrospective institutional review identified all patients receiving BHR MoM THA between April 2005 and February 2011 and a matched control cohort of zirconium THA patients. Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), Harris Hip Score (HHS), and SF-12 Health status scores were obtained. Revisions and complications were collected from clinical records. Radiographs were assessed for evidence of component malposition, loosening, osteolysis, or heterotopic ossification. ...

ConclusionsUsing non-irradiated allografts for one-stage reconstructions of all the injured ligaments in MLKIs is effective and safe. Anteroposterior stability was difficult to restore, but patients returned to their daily activities and sometimes to their sports activity at the same preinjury level.Level of evidenceLevel IV, case series.
