Normally Dual Mobility Bearings are not the prefered device, but have special uses for patients that have dislocations and other problems. The heads are larger and provide a dual mobility which is an advantage in special cases.
Dislocation after total hip arthroplasty remains a major problem and hip instability is the most common reason for revision. These complications are costly to both patients and the healthcare system, and efforts to reduce them have had varied degrees of success. Although there are well documented patient and surgical risk factors for dislocation, the typical surgical solutions offered (constrained liners, large femoral heads) have the drawbacks of reduced range-of-motion and high rates of revision. Dual-mobility prostheses (unconstrained tripolar prostheses) are hip design solutions to dislocation that aim to provide a greater stability with an increased range-of-motion,
along with potentially reduced wear. The mean overall dislocation rate from multiple combined studies using dual-mobility prostheses …

MarketResearchReports.Biz has announced addition of new report “Global Knee And Hip Replacements Market (By Type, Material,Fixation, Approach): Opportunities And Forecasts (2016-2021) (By Type – Total Knee & Hip Replacement, Partial Knee & Hip Replacement, Revision Knee Replacement, Hip Resurfacing: By Material – Metals, Ceramics, Plastics: By Procedure – Cementless Fixation, Cemented Fixation, Hybrid Fixation: By Approach- Direct Anterior Approach ,Anterolateral Approach , Posterolateral Approach By Country-USA, U.K., Germany, India, China.)” to its database.
Improved technological advancement leading to growing demand for Knee and hip replacement services coupled with growing awareness among the population due to rising ageing population, obesity and osteoarthritis problem has resulted in the growth of Knee and Hip Replacements market.
Due to the growing problem of osteoarthritis, bone preservation, less healing time and technological advancement like minimally invasive surgeries has led to an increase in the knee & hip replacement market. …
My mom had her hip replaced because of a rare condition from which she was suffering. She was experiencing quite a bit of pain for months prior to receiving the news that she would need a hip replacement weeks before she ever even had it checked out actually. She came down with avascular necrosis, but she didn’t show any of the signs of having the disease which is why I took so long to realize what her problem was.
Avascular necrosis is usually a condition which either scuba divers, alcoholics, the extremely old, or some types of athletes get, and believe me, she didn’t fit in to any of those categories. It is basically caused by a lack of blood flow to areas of the bone. The bone actually starts to die because it is deprived of life giving blood, …
Choosing the best surgeon can reduce your chances of death, complications, or other bad outcomes. This website, based on analyses of more than five million surgeries done in hospital by more than 50,000 surgeons, shows you which surgeons’ patients Checkbook found had the lowest (or highest) rates of deaths, prolonged lengths of stay (indicating likely complications), or need to be readmitted to hospital, after our risk-adjustments for patient characteristics.
Recent studies indicate that females demonstrate an increased risk of experiencing adverse local tissue reactions, aseptic loosening, and revision after primary metal-on-metal hip resurfacing arthroplasty compared with males; the underlying biological mechanisms responsible for sex discrepancies in implant failure remain unclear. In addition to anatomical and biomechanical sex differences, there may be inherent immunological disparities that predispose females to more aggressive adaptive immune reactivity to implant debris, i.e., metal sensitivity…
…The findings support the possibility that the higher rate of complications after TJA in women may have an “adaptive immunological basis.” But it is still unclear whether the sex-related difference in immune sensitization is related to intrinsic biologic factors, such as hormones, or to environmental factors, such as exposure to metals in jewelry or cosmetics.…
Congratulations to Dr. Brooks of the Cleveland Clinic. He has done 3000 hip resurfacings to date. Dr. Brooks has been a supporter of Hip Resurfacing for many years and is an excellent surgeon with excellent outcomes.
