For young adults with borderline hip dysplasia (BHD), primary arthroscopy provides positive long-term outcomes, improving symptoms and function while avoiding the need for hip replacement surgery in most cases, reports a study in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.
Chondromalacia patella, also known as runner's knee, is a knee condition that can cause pain and grinding when the knee is flexed.
Hip dysplasia is a condition affecting both infants and adults, characterized by a shallow acetabulum that does not sufficiently cover the head of the femur.
Increasing trend toward joint-preserving procedures for hip osteonecrosis in the United States from 2010 to 2019
The incidence of osteonecrosis of the femoral head is estimated at about 10 to 20,000 patients annually, and, when left untreated, 80% or more of cases progress to femoral head collapse.
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a cost-effective procedure, but it is also associated with substantial postoperative pain. The present study aimed to compare pain relief and functional recovery after TKA among groups that received intravenous corticosteroids, periarticular corticosteroids, or a combination of both.
