Minimum ten year results of total hip arthroplasty with the acetabular reinforcement ring in avascular osteonecrosis


Koch, P P; Tannast, M; Fujita, H; Siebenrock, K; Ganz, R (2008). Minimum ten year results of total hip arthroplasty with the acetabular reinforcement ring in avascular osteonecrosis. International Orthopaedics, 32(2):173-179.

Abstract

Total hip arthroplasty (THA) still carries a higher failure rate in patients with avascular necrosis of the femoral head (AVN) than in a similar patient population with THA for other reasons. This is particularly true for the acetabular component. One of the major factors accounting for this is the compromised acetabular bone quality with structural defects subsequent to collapsing of the femoral head in high-grade AVN. In this study we implanted an acetabular reinforcement ring with hook (ARRH), which had been used successfully for other indications with acetabular bone stock deficiency, in 32 consecutive THA's in 29 patients with AVN. Five patients died during the observation period of causes unrelated to the surgery, one patient was lost to follow-up and one patient could not be followed up due to chronic illness, leaving 25 hips (23 patients) with a minimum follow-up of ten years (mean: 11.8; range: 10-15). The mean Merle d'Aubigne score increased significantly from 7.7 preoperatively to 16.6 postoperatively (p < 0.001). One revision was performed for aseptic stem loosening. Of the unrevised hips, one acetabular component was classified as definitively loose. The cumulative 12-year survivorship for THA with ARRH in AVN was 95.2% (confidence interval: 86.1-100%) for both components, 100% for the cup and 95.2% for the stem (86.1-100%).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
