Total hip arthroplasty after renal transplantation. Long-term follow-up study and assessment of metabolic bone status

The Journal of Arthroplasty
V J DevlinK M Butt


Twenty-two patients had 36 total hip arthroplasties for painful osteonecrosis of the femoral head. At a mean of 86 months after operation, a complete follow-up evaluation, including physical examination, was obtained in 24 hips in 15 patients. An additional 12 hips in seven patients were followed by telephone interview and radiographic evaluation. Although most patients experienced improved hip function and symptomatic relief from pain as a result of the operation, 10 hips developed heterotopic bone, 5 hips dislocated after operation, 6 hips failed due to aseptic loosening, and 1 hip developed a deep infection, and one patient died due to pulmonary embolism. Neither sex, preoperative steroid dose, nor postoperative mean alternate-day steroid dose could be related to aseptic loosening. However, histologic examination of transilial bone biopsy specimens (7 patients, 13 hips) revealed steroid-induced osteoporosis, by the presence of hyperosteoidosis (increased unmineralized osteoid) and increased bone resorption. Bilateral hip involvement, osteoporosis, and high turnover skeletal remodelling at the cement-bone interface potentially contributed to a failure rate that was higher in this group than that reported for primary hip arthr...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Nodding Syndrome

Nodding Syndrome is a neurological and epileptiform disorder characterized by psychomotor, mental, and growth retardation. Discover the latest research on Nodding Syndrome here.

LRRK2 & Microtubules

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are risk-factors for developing Parkinson’s disease (PD). LRRK2 mutations in PD have been shown to enhance its association with microtubules. Here is the latest research.
