Recent advances in additive manufacturing (AM) have enabled the fabrication of functionally graded porous biomaterials (FGPBs) for application as orthopedic implants and bone substitutes. Here, we present a step-wise topological design of FGPB based on diamond unit cells to mimic the structure of the femoral diaphysis. The FGPB was manufactured from Ti-6Al-4V powder using the selective laser melting (SLM) technique. Read More

Background: The mid-femoral head (F ) is a common fluoroscopic target for common femoral artery (CFA) puncture during cardiac catheterization. Punctures above the inguinal ligament (marking the proximal end of CFA) increase the risk of retroperitoneal hemorrhage and are classified as high punctures.
Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 114 CT angiograms for the anatomic relationship of the inguinal ligament to the femoral head (FH) and inferior epigastric artery (IEA). Read More

Isolated atherosclerotic lesions of the common femoral artery (CFA) are rare but can produce significant claudication and critical limb ischemia. To date, the "gold standard" treatment for this entity has been common femoral endarterectomy (CFE) with or without patch angioplasty. However, surgery does have significant early postoperative complications, with a 15% combined mortality/morbidity. Read More

An ASBMR task force recommends a drug holiday for certain women treated for ≥5 years with oral alendronate or ≥3 years with intravenous zoledronic acid, with reassessment 2-3 years later. It is not known whether changes in BMD or bone turnover markers differ after oral or intravenous therapy. Our goal was to compare changes in BMD and procollagen type I N propeptide, PINP, after oral or intravenous bisphosphonate use. Read More

Since its introduction by Lucien Campeau three decades ago, percutaneous radial artery approach at the forearm has been shown to provide advantages over the femoral approach and has become the standard approach for coronary angiography and intervention. Though infrequent, vascular complications still remain, mainly radial artery occlusion. Therefore, a more distal radial approach at the snuffbox or at the dorsum of hand has been suggested, initially by anethesiologists for perioperative patient monitoring, and more recently by Babunashvili et al.

Objective: This study sought to assess the potential benefits of the transradial approach (TRA) as an alternative vascular access to the classical contralateral femoral approach for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
Background: Vascular and bleeding complications in TAVR have gradually decreased owing to operator experience and downsizing of the delivery system. However, about 1/4 of vascular access site complications are related to the transfemoral (TF) secondary access. Read More

Brain injury associated with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) has been recognized in patients with congenital heart diseases and those undergoing aortic arch surgeries. However, the preclinical investigation of long-term cerebral injury and recovery mechanisms related to DHCA has been restricted to a satisfactory recovery animal model with a determined recovery time. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of a long-term surviving DHCA model without blood priming in rats, in order to investigate the pathophysiology of long-term complications in further studies.

Purified mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) may be used for a multitude of applications, from the study of biological processes such as cell division and coordinated gene expression to tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. However, although highly similar, MSCs isolated and purified from different tissues may be biologically different in the ability of the cells to respond to environmental cues that instigate and propagate changes in cell fate such as differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis, and senescence. Selecting which MSC subtype to study may therefore profoundly influence the outcome of the investigation. Read More

The present study assessed whether microRNA (miR)‑27a is an influential factor in steroid‑induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) and investigated the underlying mechanism of action. The results indicated that serum miR‑27a was decreased in a rat model of ONFH compared with that in control rats. It was also observed that increased miR‑27a expression promoted osteogenic differentiation and cell proliferation, inhibited caspase‑3/9 and B‑cell lymphoma‑2‑associated X protein expression and induced alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity and bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)‑2, runt‑related transcription factor (Runx)2 and osteonectin mRNA expression in osteoblastic MC3T3‑E1 cells.

Bone marrow aspirate concentrate is commonly harvested to obtain mesenchymal stem cells, progenitor cells, and growth factors. The iliac crest is the most common donor site for bone marrow harvesting and is associated with donor site morbidity of an additional incision and pain from the harvest. Iliac crest harvesting can be cumbersome because it often requires different patient positioning from the surgical procedure and additional sedation or anesthesia for the harvest prior to repositioning.

Hip arthroscopy has been increasing tremendously in the past decade and is a very common surgical procedure to repair femoroacetabular impingement. To access the hip joint, distraction is mandatory to treat intra-articular disorders such as labral tears, cartilage loose bodies, and ligamentum teres tears and to evaluate the condition of the femoral head and acetabular cartilage. To distract the hip, counterdistraction is needed, and this is achieved with placement of a bulky and cushioned perineal post. Read More

In the setting of true hip dysplasia, the high prevalence of intra-articular pathology may lead to recurrent symptoms and failure after periacetabular osteotomy (PAO). Femoral neck osteochondroplasty, microfracture, removal of loose bodies, and labral repair are examples of procedures that are performed with concomitant arthroscopy. When damage to the labrum is too severe to repair, reconstruction instead of extensive debridement before PAO can be more effective in restoring the labral seal to maintain joint lubrication and chondral protection.

Some proximal femur fractures may be treated surgically with the use of fracture fixation hardware such as the sliding hip screw and its variants. These devices allow the femoral head and neck fragment to compress against the trochanteric or shaft fragment as the hip screw telescopes into the barrel of the side plate. We describe an unusual complication in which the hip screw disengaged in the opposite direction, migrated through the hip joint, and came to rest inside the pelvic cavity. Read More

Elderly patients undergoing both elective and nonelective hip arthroplasty contribute markedly to health care spending, and the current aging population is likely to require even more resources. Several national joint replacement registries show a lower risk of revision surgery in patients older than 75 years who received cemented femoral components compared with cementless implants for primary total hip arthroplasty. Despite a higher incidence of early periprosthetic femoral fracture, noncemented femoral components are being used with increasing frequency in elderly patients worldwide. Read More
