  • What Is the Optimal Approach for Treating a Displaced Femoral Neck Fracture?

    Is there a better option for the surgical management of displaced femoral neck fractures? Maybe not better, but at least as good, according to the findings of a large clinical study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study – a head-to-head comparison of THA and hemiarthroplasty to treat displaced femoral head fractures – included nearly 1500 patients at 80 institutions in 10 countries.

  • PJI Risk Increases in Patients Undergoing Aseptic Reoperation within 1 Year of THA

    It is crucial for surgeons to understand why their patients could be at risk for PJI so that they can then take steps to reduce that risk. At the 2019 AAHKS Annual Meeting, researchers from Mayo Clinic added to the discussion on risk factors surgeons need to consider: They presented data on the risk of PJI in the year following aseptic reoperation in primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) patients.

  • Subchondral insufficiency fractures of the femoral head: systematic review of diagnosis, treatment and outcomes

    Subchondral insufficiency fractures of the femoral head (SIFFH) are a cause of femoral head collapse leading to degenerative hip disease. SIFFH is often mistaken for osteonecrosis given similar clinical and radiographic features. These similarities often lead to missed or delayed diagnosis which can often delay or change management. The purpose of this article is to systematically review the spectrum of demographics, diagnostic and treatment options, including hip preservation in young patient populations.
