Why is open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) the gold standard for managing periprosthetic fractures of the distal femur? Because it works, George J. Haidukewych, MD, told attendees at ICJR’s Advanced Techniques in Total Hip & Total Knee Arthroplasty course, achieving bony union in more than 90% of cases.
Using data from the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry, researchers evaluated whether implant choice in revision total hip arthroplasty for dislocation can reduce the risk of recurrent dislocations and, subsequently, the need for a second revision surgery.
An international research team led by Monash University has uncovered a new technique that could speed up recovery from bone replacements by altering the shape and nucleus of individual stem cells.
The research is intended to address a knowledge gap on the use of tranexamic acid, a drug that is currently used in the majority of patients undergoing hip and knee replacement surgery.
