Using data from the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry, researchers evaluated whether the surgical approach was associated with differences in early revision rates in primary total hip arthroplasty patients.
Dr. Stephen Howell answers ICJR’s questions about calipered kinematic alignment total knee arthroplasty, including the learning curve, how to set the femoral and tibial components, and how to reduce the risk of complications.
The study led by Imperial College London found that flexibility, as well as density, in the bone nanostructure is an important factor in assessing how likely someone is to suffer fractures.
