[Patient optimization before hip revision arthroplasty: : How to handle comorbidities].

Orthopadie (Heidelb) 2022 Jun 27. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Orthopädie und Unfallchirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Bonn, Venusberg Campus 1, 53129, Bonn, Deutschland.

Preoperative optimization of the therapeutic regime of comorbidities can lead to an improvement of the postoperative outcome and has the potential to reduce the financial burden on the health care system in revision hip arthroplasty. Patient-related factors and an increasing incidence of comorbidities lead to a higher risk of implant failure and revision for all causes. Important and potentially modifiable risk factors like preoperative anemia, coagulopathy, infectious disease (dental status, urinary tract infections, colonization with staphylococcus), metabolic conditions (obesity, malnutrition, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis), and smoking need to be addressed.

Development of bony range of motion (B-ROM) boundary for total hip replacement planning.

Comput Methods Programs Biomed 2022 Jun 8;222:106937. Epub 2022 Jun 8.

WMG, The University of Warwick, Coventry CV4 7AL, UK.

Background And Objective: Pre-operative surgical planning using computer simulation is increasingly standard practice before Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA), in order to determine the optimal implant positions, and thereby minimise post-operative complications such as dislocation, wear and leg length discrepancy. One of the limitations of current methods, however, is the lack of information on the subject-specific reference range of motion (ROM) that could be used as targets for surgical planning. Only a limited number of hip motions are considered, which are neither subject-specific, nor representative of all the hip motions associated with all the activities of daily livings (ADLs).

Associations of body shape phenotypes with sex steroids and their binding proteins in the UK Biobank cohort.

Sci Rep 2022 Jun 24;12(1):10774. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, School of Public Health, Imperial College London, St Mary's Campus, Norfolk Place, London, W2 1PG, UK.

Associations of sex steroids and their binding proteins with body shape are unclear, because waist and hip circumference are correlated strongly with body size. We defined body shape using "a body shape index" (ABSI) and hip index (HI), which are independent of weight and height by design, and examined associations in multivariable generalised linear models for the UK Biobank cohort (179,902 men, 207,444 women). Total testosterone was associated inversely with ABSI, especially in men. Read More

Higher risk of knee arthroplasty during ten-year follow-up if baseline radiographic osteoarthritis involves the patellofemoral joint: a CHECK Cohort Study.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Jun 22;23(1):600. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Department of General Practice, Erasmus University Medical Center Rotterdam, Doctor Molewaterplein 40, 3015 GD, Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Background: Patellofemoral OA is a strong risk factor for progression to generalized whole knee OA, but it is unknown whether involvement of the patellofemoral joint in early radiographic OA (ROA) is associated with risk of undergoing future knee arthroplasty. This is clinically relevant because patellofemoral OA likely requires a different treatment approach than tibiofemoral OA, and identifying prognostic factors for future arthroplasty might assist clinicians with prioritizing and guiding early interventions that could improve long-term outcomes. Therefore, we evaluated association of baseline patellofemoral or tibiofemoral ROA with undergoing knee arthroplasty over 10 years. Read More
