From implant technology and robotic surgery to techniques and complications, Healio revisits the most influential news, research and advancements in total hip arthroplasty in 2022.
Hip bursitis is inflammation of the bursae of the hips. Treatment usually involves anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, and rest.
Researchers say people with knee osteoarthritis appear to get some short-term pain relief after receiving injections of genicular nerve blocks. They said people who received the injections reported significant pain relief eight weeks after the treatment. The relief appeared to wane after 12 weeks.
Hip arthroscopy can minimize the invasiveness of certain procedures that are used to treat this type of injury.
Medial Pivot Designs Versus Conventional Bearing Types in Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
Medial pivot (MP) designs are growing in popularity. They provide increased sagittal plane stability and theoretically replicate some aspects of native joint kinematics, which may improve total knee arthroplasty outcomes.
