Hip Resurfacing remains an excellent procedure. Prof McMinn and Mr Ronan Treacy’s previous design the BIRMINGHAM HIP™ Resurfacing (BHR™) (1) proudly demonstrates an ODEP 13A* rating in the UK. (2)
Restrictions in size range and gender application in many countries relating to Metal on Metal Hip Resurfacing, limit the use of these implants to males, and component sizes from 48 to 62mm only.
JointMedica and others, are exploring alternative materials to Metal on Metal for use in Hip Resurfacings.

Encouraging results with modern polyethylene supports JointMedica’s hypothesis that Highly Cross-linked Polyethylene could offer advantages over hard on hard articulations in the longer term (4).

Modern metal-on-metal (MoM) hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA), while achieving good results with well-orientated, well-designed components in ideal patients, is contraindicated in women, men with head size under 50 mm, or metal hypersensitivity. These patients currently have no access to the benefits of HRA. Highly crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) has demonstrated clinical success in total hip arthroplasty (THA) and, when used in HRA, potentially reduces metal ion-related sequelae. We report the early performance of HRA using a direct-to-bone cementless mono-bloc XLPE component coupled with a cobalt-chrome femoral … Read the rest

A member of the JointMedica team was privileged to have attended the inaugural Pathways Conference, held in London on 4 October 2019. Details of this independent scientific meeting can be found at the following link.
This meeting coincided with the 50th anniversary of JRI Orthopaedics. Founded in 1969 by orthopaedic surgeon Ronald Furlong. It is acknowledged within the orthopaedic industry that JRI was the first company to offer a primary total hip replacement implant with Hydroxyapatite coating. https://jri-ltd.com/
This event was chaired by Prof Justin Cobb, Chair of Orthopaedics and clinical lead at Imperial College, London. Prof Cobb also serves as a civilian advisor in orthopaedics to the Royal Air Force and is Orthopaedic Surgeon to Her Majesty the Queen.

In October Mr Derek McMinn outlined in a presentation to the International Society for Technology in Arthroplasty the scientific and technological breakthroughs that have led to the next step in hip resurfacing – Polyethylene on Metal. See that video here – https://youtu.be/PcRtOZ4GnYA In this video we talk to some of the early patients who talk about about their experiences with the new implant and how it has enabled them to get back to their normal lives.

The Polymotion Hip Resurfacing device is an allergy-free device that uses a 3mm-thick cup made with a material known as cross-linked polyethylene, one of the toughest plastics in existence.
Traditional metal-on-metal hip resurfacing uses cobalt chromium alloy, explains Mr Derek McMinn, a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at BMI Edgbaston Hospital in Birmingham, who developed the new procedure.
‘Metal reactions vary in severity, but in the worst cases can lead to necrosis [death] of surrounding hip muscle and permanent disability for the patient,’ he said.
Another benefit of the capping procedure is that less bone is removed, in contrast to total hip replacements when the femoral head (ball joint of the hip) is replaced by a stemmed device and very little of the upper leg bone is … Read the rest
