Hip dysplasia is a condition that occurs when the hip socket (acetabulum) is too shallow to fully support the ball of the hip joint, called the femoral head. This typically affects a developing fetus, a condition called congenital hip dysplasia or developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). However, symptoms can appear during adolescence or even in adulthood.
One bursa is located over the top of the greater trochanter, which is a large protrusion on the side of the hip. If this bursa becomes inflamed, doctors call this trochanteric bursitis.
Increasing intake of protein and drinking regular cups of tea or coffee is a way women could reduce their risk of suffering a hip fracture, according to new research.
Kinematic alignment versus mechanical alignment in total knee arthroplasty: An up-to-date meta-analysis
The purpose of this meta-analysis was to compare the efficacy and imaging parameters of kinematic alignment (KA) and mechanical alignment (MA) in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and to evaluate whether patients undergoing KA-TKA benefited more than those undergoing MA-TKA.
A Yale Medicine orthopaedic surgeon has developed an innovative procedure that uses a patient’s own stem cells to treat a condition that can cause painful hip fractures.
