Three Concurrent Periprosthetic Joint Infections: A Case Report and Literature Review

Pina M, Gaukhman A, Hayden B, Smith EL

  • Hip Pelvis.
  • 2019 Mar;31(1):57-62.
  • doi: 10.5371/hp.2019.31.1.57
Periprosthetic joint infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality following total joint arthroplasty. Two-stage arthroplasty, with the use of an antibiotic cement spacer, is an effective means of...
Trochanteric Fixation Nail® with Helical Blade Compared with Femoral Neck Screw for Operative Treatment of Intertrochanteric Femoral Fractures

van Leur J, Jakma T, Willemsen , Punt B

  • Hip Pelvis.
  • 2019 Mar;31(1):48-56.
  • doi: 10.5371/hp.2019.31.1.48
PURPOSE: This study was performed to compare outcomes of the Trochanteric Fixation Nail (TFN®) with a helical blade versus TFN® with a femoral neck screw for the treatment of intertrochanteric...
The Majority of Corona Mortis Are Small Calibre Venous Blood Vessels: A Cadaveric Study of North Indians

Kashyap S, Diwan Y, Mahajan S, Diwan D, Lal M, Chauhan R

  • Hip Pelvis.
  • 2019 Mar;31(1):40-47.
  • doi: 10.5371/hp.2019.31.1.40
PURPOSE: Corona mortis is an abnormal arterial or venous anastomosis between the external iliac and the obturator system of vessels and may cause significant hemorrhage during pelvi-acetabular fracture surgeries, hernia...
Comparison of the Incidence of Intra-operative Fractures in Hip Hemi-arthroplasty Performed in Supine and Lateral Positions

Kamo K, Kido H, Kido S

  • Hip Pelvis.
  • 2019 Mar;31(1):33-39.
  • doi: 10.5371/hp.2019.31.1.33
PURPOSE: The difficulty of femoral preparation with supine-position hip hemi-arthroplasty (HA) often leads to intra-operative fractures (IOFs). We aimed to clarify the incidence and types of IOFs in HA for...
The Frequency of Occult Intertrochanteric Fractures among Individuals with Isolated Greater Trochanteric Fractures

Noh J, Lee KH, Jung S, Hwang S

  • Hip Pelvis.
  • 2019 Mar;31(1):23-32.
  • doi: 10.5371/hp.2019.31.1.23
PURPOSE: Isolated greater trochanteric (GT) fractures are often identified using plain radiography of patients with post-traumatic hip pain. In many cases, the fracture extends to form an occult intertrochanteric fracture....
Outcomes of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Detected Occult Neck of Femur Fractures: Do They Represent a Less Severe Injury with Improved Outcomes?

Raval P, Mayne AI, Yeap PM, Oliver TB, Jariwala A, Sripada S

  • Hip Pelvis.
  • 2019 Mar;31(1):18-22.
  • doi: 10.5371/hp.2019.31.1.18
PURPOSE: Occult hip fractures in the elderly can be missed on standard radiographs and are a known cause of morbidity. These are generally diagnosed on either magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...
Favorable Functional Recovery and Stem Stability after Hip Arthroplasty with a Short Metaphyseal Stem in Elderly Patients with Osteoporotic Femoral Neck Fractures

Lee SJ, Yoon KS

  • Hip Pelvis.
  • 2019 Mar;31(1):11-17.
  • doi: 10.5371/hp.2019.31.1.11
PURPOSE: Short stems have recently become widely used; however, concerns about the initial secure fixation of a short stem in osteoporotic bone remain. The aim of this study was to...
Effect of Spine-Pelvis Relationship in Total Hip Arthroplasty

Lee SH, Lim CW, Choi KY, Jo S

  • Hip Pelvis.
  • 2019 Mar;31(1):4-10.
  • doi: 10.5371/hp.2019.31.1.4
When spine-pelvic motion is normally coordinated, the pelvis may tilt posteriorly and acetabular anteversion may increase as the patient's position changes from standing to sitting; this scenario allows for improved...
Should a Urinary Tract Infection Be Treated before a Total Joint Arthroplasty?

Parvizi J, Koo KH

  • Hip Pelvis.
  • 2019 Mar;31(1):1-3.
  • doi: 10.5371/hp.2019.31.1.1
Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) is one of the most serious complications after total joint arthroplasty (TJA). The prevalence of urinary tract infection (UTI) is common, particularly among elderly women, a...
