Hip arthritis results from the breakdown of cartilage within your hip joints, causing hip stiffness and pain that can increase with inactivity, standing, and walking. Although walking can be uncomfortable and difficult with hip arthritis, walking is also incredibly important for maintaining the mobility and strength of your hips.
Retained Functional Antibiotic Hip Spacers Have High Rates of Stem Loosening, Subsidence, and Reoperation
Functional antibiotic hip spacers for treatment of periprosthetic joint infection may be retained in patients deemed too sick for reimplantation, or who elect to forego additional surgery. Our aim was to characterize reoperations, modes of failure, and function outcomes in patients who have retained hip spacers.
Repetitive Pitching Decreases the Elbow Valgus Stability Provided by the Flexor-Pronator Mass: The Effects of Repetitive Pitching on Elbow Valgus Stability
Baseball pitching induces a large elbow valgus load, stressing the ulnar collateral ligament. Flexor-pronator mass contraction contributes to valgus stability; however, repetitive baseball pitching may weaken the flexor-pronator mass contractile function. The present study investigated the effects of repetitive baseball pitching on the medial valgus stability measured using ultrasonography.
Isolated Primary Latarjet Procedures for Anterior Shoulder Instability Results in High Rates of Graft Resorption and Glenohumeral Degenerative Changes with Low Rates of Failure at a Minimum 2-Year Follow-Up: A Systematic Review
To evaluate the incidence of postoperative complications after an isolated primary Latarjet procedure for anterior shoulder instability at a minimum 2-year follow-up.
Studies have shown that 1 in 8 patients who see a hand surgeon have symptoms of depression. This means that many patients can have hand issues and depression at the same time.
