|The only words to describe me are, JUST PLAIN HAPPY! This is life, this is wonderful. At six weeks I was at the halfway point between the left leg which was surfed 2-35-05 and the right leg which is going to be surfed 5-27-05. If anyone had told me that my new leg would be carrying the old one around at 6 weeks post op I wouldn’t have believed them. But it is true. The old leg is so crabby. Since I was too timid to have a bilat like brave Anna was, now I can clearly feel the difference.|

Decreased head-neck ratio diameter and component malposition in total hip arthroplasty are factors known to result in impingement, increased rates of dislocation, wear and failure. In addition to these complications, impingement of the femoral neck on the acetabular component of a hip resurfacing may result in femoral neck fracture and loosening of the acetabular component. Little is known regarding the optimum femoral and acetabular hip resurfacing component position to avoid impingement.
In the first part of this study we analyzed the radiographic component

|Read Complete Study by clicking hereMay 2011Despite being proclaimed as “The operation of the century,” total hip arthroplasty is far from an ideal procedure. In fact, one study found that “in spite of a good hip score, only 43% of patients had all of their expectations completely fulfilled,” said Robert L. Barrack, MD, chief of service, Orthopedic Surgery, at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo.Although patient selection is rarely an issue with total hip arthroplasty (THA) and the surgical technique “is more forgiving,” selection and technique are major issues with metal-metal hip resurfacing replacement arthroplasty|
Resurfacing patients had gait characteristics that were comparable to normal hips. Although standard hip replacements had markedly improved gait parameters when compared to osteoarthritic hips they never approached resurfacing or normals. “

I am happy to report that as of 5:00 PM, Tuesday afternoon, January 9, 2007, I am the proud new owner of a Dr. Su installed right BHR at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Dr. Su sent me home on Friday morning, January 12, with the following instructions: bilateral support for three full weeks, weight as tolerated, no restrictions. On Saturday morning I took my first walk, which was as sweet a stroll as I have ever had. Each day I feel better and stronger, but because of swelling, my backside,
Can I have an MRI after I had a hip resurfacing? This is a question many people ask after having a hip resurfacing. This is Dr. Rubinstein’s answer:
MRI is perfectly safe with any orthopaedic implant (joint replacements, fracture hardware screws and others). The implants may degrade the picture quality in the areas right near the implants but no harm will come to the implants or the surrounding bone.Pacemakers are another story and are not safe with MRI. Other things that can be problematic are metal filings in the eye and vascular clips placed within 6 months.Scott Rubinstein
Derek McMinn addresses the recent Concerns about Hip Resurfacing and Metal on Metal (MoM) implants Interview by Vicky Marlow

Internationally renowned hip and knee surgeon and designer and pioneer of the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing, Derek McMinn addresses concerns about Hip Resurfacing and Metal on Metal (MoM) implants.
Derek McMinn has done over 6000 total hip surgeries and over 3,500 MoM Hip Resurfacings. His 10 year survivorship for the BHR (Birmingham Hip Resurfacing)in a series of 3095 performed up until December 2009 is 97% from all patients. His first metal/metal resurfacing prototype was implanted in 1991, and the … Read the rest

MANCHESTER – Researchers here reported that adverse soft tissue reactions following metal-on-metal hip arthroplasty are typically due to increased wear of the bearing surfaces, and patients with smaller femoral heads may be particularly susceptible to these complications.In an independent center study, David Langton, FRCS, and colleagues in the Joint Replacement Unit at the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton, England, reviewed 155 Birmingham Hip resurfacings (BHR, Smith & Nephew) performed between 2002 and 2009 (mean follow-up, 60 months). They also studied 420 articular surface replacements (ASRs) and 75

HYPOTHESIS: Patients undergoing total hip resurfacing can have a high level of sports activity. STUDY DESIGN: Case series; Level of evidence, 4.
METHODS: The authors evaluated the level of sports activities with a standardized questionnaire in 138 consecutive patients (152 hips) 2 years after total hip resurfacing. Range of motion, Harris hip score, and Oxford

(For) most surgeons in the United Kingdom, our usage of metal-on-metal hip replacements has dwindled to almost nothing because we cannot really find any advantage. The patients do not do any better in terms of function. There is some evidence the patient’s reported pain levels are higher anyway and the revision rate is higher, so it is not adding much value.In terms of metal-on-metal, we (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory|
