An Overview of Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip and Its Management Timing and Approaches
Efficacy and safety of arthroscopy in femoroacetabular impingement syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials
This study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of arthroscopy with physiotherapy or joint lavage in patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). A meta-analysis using PubMed, Embase, Scopus, and the Cochrane Collaboration Library databases was performed in September 2022. We included studies focusing on patients with FAI who underwent arthroscopic surgery versus those who underwent physiotherapy or arthroscopic lavage.
Preoperative planning is important for successful total hip arthroplasty (THA) and has been historically performed using acetate templates. Digital software templating has been adopted for evaluating implant size, position, and alignment. Commercial software can be expensive, but free programs exist. Detroit Bone Setter (detroitbonesetter.com, Detroit, MI) is a freely available templating program, but hasn’t been validated. Our study reports this program’s accuracy for templating THA.
Advances in the application of wearable sensors for gait analysis after total knee arthroplasty: a systematic review
Wearable sensors have become a complementary means for evaluation of body function and gait in lower limb osteoarthritis. This study aimed to review the applications of wearable sensors for gait analysis after total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
There are multiple approaches to surgery, including traditional, minimally invasive, and robotic-assisted. A surgeon can also choose from various implants based on ligament stability and other factors, such as deformity, previous trauma, or prior surgery.
