A new study about adverse reactions to metal debris after Metal on Metal THR and Hip Resurfacing shows the current follow-up guidelines worldwide are not cost effective or evidence-based.
The follow-up guidelines for metal-on-metal (MoM) hip arthroplasty and hip resurfacing from five worldwide authorities worldwide, including the U.K. were included.
Findings showed large differences between cost per patients. U.S. costs were three-times more than MHRA costs…
…Australia vs. U.S. and Canada guidelines were about six-times more costly … Read the rest

I had a BMHR 4 weeks ago. The operation was broadcast live to the States as interactive training for 100 surgeons, so hopefully it is intended to be available elsewhere too, though when we don’t know, as it’s still in the early trial stage.I was born with CHD ..my femoral head was very soft because it wasn’t in the socket, hadn’t been weight bearing and had lost some of its calcium. So I wasn’t suitable for a BHR but
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. “

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.

Yes, it is true that minimally invasive approach has been proven not to have great benefits over a conventional incision in terms of blood loss, pain , or speed of recovery in the same surgeons hands. It is only of cosmetic value.All studies to investigate this have been done on two groups of patients in which a single surgeon employs the two approaches in the diff groups.

In a review of 585 blood serum evaluations following hip resurfacing, only femoral size and cup inclination were found to have an effect on ion levels, according a study by orthopedic investigators.
The findings were presented at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
David J. Langton, MRCS, and his colleagues also found that the size of the coverage angle of the acetabular component contributed
