ConclusionsComplete miscarriage after expectant management is significantly more likely in embryonic miscarriage than in anembryonic miscarriage. Gestational age, crown-rump-length, and gestational sac diameter are independent predictors of success of expectant management. Predictors of treatment success may help counselling women with early miscarriage.

CONCLUSIONS: 1. Our follow-up data from a mean of 11 years show that the use of the anatomical AURA II stem results in a considerable reduction in hip pain and produces good and lasting clinical outcomes. 2. With good surgical technique and in the absence of complications, the risk of aseptic loosening is minimal. PMID: 32986003 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Postoperative TEA is an advanced technique that poses certain difficulties that can subvert its great potential. While serious complications were rare, minor complications occurred more often and affected the postoperative course negatively. A risk/benefit evaluation of each patient should be done before employing the technique. PMID: 32982397 [PubMed]
