Each year more than 70,000 older adults are admitted to a U.K. hospital after a hip fracture, which can lead to a decline in quality of life, high mortality risk and, after discharge, high risk of emergency hospital readmission.
The Impact of Extended Trochanteric Osteotomy with Cerclage Fixation in Revision Total Hip Arthroplasty for Prosthetic Joint Infection
An extended trochanteric osteotomy (ETO) is a powerful tool for femoral component revision. There is limited evidence that directly supports its use in the setting of a prosthetic joint infection (PJI). Cerclage fixation raises the theoretical concern for persistent infection.
Results presented at the Musculoskeletal Infection Society Annual Meeting showed synovial biomarkers did not demonstrate high prognostic utility for predicting failure following reimplantation.
Researchers say people who have knee repair surgery tend to have better outcomes than those who undergo knee reconstruction surgery. Experts, however, say the choice between the two operations isn’t always a simple one and sometimes the more intensive reconstruction surgery is necessary.
