    Title Gender is a Significant Factor for Failure of Metal-on-metal Total Hip Arthroplasty.
    Date January 2012
    Journal The Journal of Arthroplasty
    Excerpt

    Metal-on-metal (MoM) articulations offers low wear, larger head size, and increased stability. Reports of early failure are troubling and include failure of ingrowth and metal articulation problems such as metallosis, hypersensitivity, pseudotumor, and unexplained pain. This study investigates the survivorship of modern MoM articulations by gender. We reviewed 1589 primary MoM THA in 1363 patients, with minimum 2-year follow-up for 1212 hips. Follow-up averaged 60 months. There were 643 female patients and 719 male patients. The incidence of cup revision was significantly higher in women than in men (8.2% vs 2.7%; P = .0000), as was incidence of aseptic loosening (4.3% vs 1.1%; P = .0006), and failure for metal-bearing complications (2.2% vs 0.6%; P = .0126). There appear to be gender factors influencing the success of MoM THA, which may include hormonal, anatomic, or functional differences.

    Title Prevalence and Management of Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Patients Undergoing Total Joint Arthroplasty.
    Date January 2011
    Journal The Journal of Arthroplasty
    Excerpt

    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may be a risk factor for complications after total joint arthroplasty (TJA). We sought to determine the prevalence of OSA in patients undergoing TJA, and the safety and effectiveness of intrathecal narcotic (IN) in these patients. We retrospectively reviewed 1255 consecutive patients undergoing 1463 TJA at one hospital. All patients underwent routine screening for OSA and IN anesthesia, with 109 patients (134 TJA) identified with OSA (8.7%). Compared with 127 randomly selected patients (141 TJA) without OSA, OSA patients were significantly heavier and had higher American Society of Anesthesiologists scores, more comorbidities, longer length of stay, more transient hypoxia, more transfusions, and more medical variances. Despite more minor variances, with appropriate screening and management, OSA patients did not have a higher rate of significant or major complications. Length of stay, although longer, was only 2.3 days in OSA patients, demonstrating the safety and efficacy of IN anesthesia in these patients.

    Title Anterior-supine Minimally Invasive Total Hip Arthroplasty: Defining the Learning Curve.
    Date August 2009
    Journal The Orthopedic Clinics of North America
    Excerpt

    The anterior-supine intermuscular approach is a truly muscle-sparing approach to total hip arthroplasty with a low complication rate. The advantages include improved early recovery and return to everyday activities. The authors found the learning curve to be around 40 cases and 6 months in a high-volume joint surgeon's practice. This article provides a detailed description of the surgical approach, including the use of a standard operating room table and fluoroscopy. Cadaver dissections and one-on-one mentoring are recommended when implementing this approach in one's practice.
