Florian-D. Naal, MD*, Nicola A. Maffiuletti, PhD, Urs Munzinger, MD and Otmar Hersche, MDFrom the Joint Center, Schulthess Clinic, Zurich, Switzerland Published on May 1, 2007 Background: No information is available concerning patients’ sports activity after hip resurfacing arthroplasty. Hypothesis: Patients treated by hip resurfacing arthroplasty will be able to achieve a high level of sports activity. Study Design: Case series; Level of evidence, 4. Methods:
A more normal gait at higher speeds is attained through hip resurfacing arthroplasty as compared to standard total hip arthroplasty, according to a study presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons 2012 Annual Meeting.
Anatole V. Wiik, MBBS and his team, performed a case control study with 63 patients – 21 total hip arthroplasty (THA), 21 hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA) and 21 healthy controls, all matched for age
Outcome of hip resurfacing may be dependent on experience
By Gina Brockenbrough February 27, 2009
LAS VEGAS — A new study links outcomes of hip resurfacing to the hospital volume of resurfacing cases and, thereby, the surgeon’s experience.To evaluate the impact of operative volume on hip resurfacing outcomes, Andrew J. Shimmin, MBBS, FAOrthA, and colleagues used the Australian Joint Registry to identify nearly 9,000 hip resurfacings performed

Metal-on-metal hip resurfacing with hybrid fixation has been introduced as an alternative to standard total hip arthroplasty, especially for young and active patients. There are few studies in the literature on the midterm results of cementless femoral side resurfacing. The purpose of this study was to … Read the rest

McMahonMay 2007 Introduction: Prevalence of femoral neck fracture in resurfacing hip arthroplasty continues to question if failure is technique-related or due to the inherent bone quality. This study aimed to correlate cement penetration profile during resurfacing hip with inherent bone density. The hypothesis is that osteoporotic bone is unable to support the|

The presence of pseudotumours, which are soft-tissue masses relating to the hip, after metal-on-metal hip resurfacing arthroplasty has been associated with elevated levels of
|Archive of failed joint replacements provides tips to building a better hip replacementA study by Hospital for Special Surgery researchers has provided the first comprehensive look at just how metal-on-metal total hip replacements are failing in patients around the country. Made possible by what is thought to be the largest archive of failed joint replacements, the research should help doctors develop a better hip replacement for future patients. The study|
