Factors Affecting Postsurgery Hip Fracture Recovery

Description of article

After hip fracture surgery, patients seldom return to their prefracture functional state and there is a 43%rate of mortality and institutionalisation of postsurgery hip fracture patients. A systematic literaturereview was conducted to identify preoperative, perioperative, postoperative, and psychosocial factorsthat may hinder postsurgery hip fracture patients from returning to previous functionality. Factors thatwere identified as being associated with postsurgical outcomes were age, muscle strength, prefractureliving arrangements, number of daily medications taken, oxygen levels, fracture type and location,haemoglobin (Hb) level, wait time prior to surgery, length of hospital stay (LOS), and dementia ordepression.

Strategies for Revision Total Ankle Replacement

Description of article

As the frequency of primary total ankle replacement (TAR) continues to build, revision will become more commonplace. At present there are no “standard principles” associated with revision TAR. What is clear is that the current approaches are technically complex, fraught with complications and no one approach represents the only answer. Exchange of TAR metallic components to the same system standard or dedicated revision components are viable options with limited occurrence of complications. Explantation and conversion to custom-design long stemmed components has limited availability. Explantation and conversion to another TAR system is high-risk and has strong potential for complications. The use of metal reinforced polymethylmethacrylate cement augmentation of failed TAR systems and tibio-talocalcaneal arthrodesis should be reserved for very select situations where other options are not possible. There is a real need for long-term survivorship following revision TAR and future efforts ought to be directed in this area.
