Many patients with degenerative joint disease of the hip have substantial degeneration of the lumbar spine. These patients may have back and lower extremity pain develop after THA and it may be difficult to determine whether the source of the pain is the hip or spine.

Kosuke Tsuda MD, Tomio Kawasaki MD, Nobuo Nakamura MD, Hideki Yoshikawa MD, Nobuhiko Sugano MD

The clinical importance of asymptomatic deep venous thrombosis in elective hip surgery is not clearly known.

Femoral Shortening in Total Hip Arthroplasty for High Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip

Olav Reikerås MD, PhD, Jarl Erik Haaland MD, Paul Lereim MD, PhD

When reconstructing a hip with developmental dysplasia with a high dislocation, placing the acetabular component in the anatomic position can result in a prosthetic hip that is difficult to reduce. Subtrochanteric femoral osteotomy and shortening makes reduction easier but can be associated with complications (eg, limp, sciatic nerve injury, nonunion of the osteotomy) or compromise long-term stem survival.

Subchondral Insufficiency Fracture of the Femoral Head may be Associated with Hip Dysplasia: A Pilot Study

Kohei Ishihara MD, Keita Miyanishi MD PhD, Hidetoshi Ihara MD, Seiya Jingushi MD PhD, Takehiko Torisu MD PhD

Subchondral insufficiency fracture of the femoral head occurs mainly in elderly patients with osteoporosis. Spontaneous resolution is observed after nonoperative treatment in some patients whereas other show progressive joint destruction requiring THA. Several studies report the occurrence of subchondral insufficiency fracture of the femoral head in dysplastic hips.

Case Report: Calcific Tendinitis of the Rectus Femoris: A Rare Cause of Snapping Hip

Luca Pierannunzii MD, Filippo Tramontana MD, Mauro Gallazzi MD

Internal snapping hip is a syndrome caused by recurrent subluxation of the iliopsoas tendon. There is little agreement regarding the impinging sites responsible for the jerky motion of the tendon. Thus far, the lesser trochanter, anterior capsule, and iliopectineal eminence are considered the most likely catching sites.
