Background and purpose — The continuously increasing demand for joint replacement surgery in the past decades imposes higher constraints on the budgets of hospitals and healthcare providers. We undertook an analysis of historical trends in total hip replacement performed in Sweden between 1968 and 2012 in order to provide projections of future demand. Data and methods — We obtained data on total hip replacements registered every year and on the evolution of the Swedish population between 1968 and 2012. We assumed the existence of a maximum incidence. So we adopted a regression framework that assumes the existence of an upper limit of total hip replacement incidence. Results — We found that the incidence of total hip replacement will continue to increase until a projected upper incidence level of about 400 total hip replacements per 105 Swedish residents aged 40 years and older will be reached around the year 2107. In 2020, the estimated incidence of total hip replacement will be 341 (95% prediction interv...

Background. It is widely recommended that health technology appraisals adopt a lifetime horizon to assess the relative costs and benefits of an intervention. However, most trials or clinical studies have relatively short follow-up periods, with the event of interest not occurring before the end of the study for many subjects. In such cases, survival analysis using parametric models can be used to extrapolate into the future. Objective .T o assess the accuracy of survival analysis in projecting f...

a higher risk to undergo revision than patients born in Sweden (HR = 1.14, 95% CI: 1.02–1.27; HR = 1.49, 95% CI: 1.2–1.9), but this difference disappeared after adjustment for covariates. Conclusion We did not find any certain differences in reoperation within 2 years, or revision within 14 years, between patients born in Sweden and immigrants. Further studies are needed to determine whether our observations are biased by the attitude of health providers regarding performance of these procedures...

Abstract Accurate projections of future demand require constant updates of current data. This article reviews the most recent usage data for primary total joint arthroplasty (TJA) in a community-based hospital system with 3.2 million members. We used administrative databases to determine plan membership, surgical volume, and age-adjusted incidence rates for TJA from 1996 through 2009. The annual growth rate in surgical volume peaked in 2002 at 18% and decreased to 3% by 2009. The annual growth r...

Objective To examine patterns of pharmacotherapy and health care utilization and costs prior to total knee replacement (TKR) or total hip replacement (THR) in patients with osteoarthritis (OA). Methods Using a large US health insurance claims database, we identified all patients with OA who were ages ≥40 years and had undergone TKR or THR between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2007. Patients with <2 years of complete data prior to TKR or THR were excluded, as were those with evidence of other ...

Background and purpose The use of hip arthroplasties is evidently increasing, but there are few published data on the incidence in young patients.Methods We used data on total and resurfacing hip arthroplasties (THAs and RHAs) from the Finnish Arthroplasty Register and population data from Statistics Finland to analyze the incidences of THA and RHA in patients aged 30–59 years in Finland, for the period 1980 through 2007.Results The combined incidences of THAs and RHAs among 30- to 59-year-old i...

Akaike’s information criterion (AIC) is increasingly being used in analyses in the field of ecology. This measure allows one to compare and rank multiple competing models and to estimate which of them best approximates the “true” process underlying the biological phenomenon under study. Behavioural ecologists have been slow to adopt this statistical tool, perhaps because of unfounded fears regarding the complexity of the technique. Here, we provide, using recent examples from the behavioural eco...

Background Considerable variation in total hip arthroplasty (THA) incidence between regions has been described. The aim of this study was to evaluate geographical variation in the incidence of primary THA for OA in Finland and to analyze variables associated with this variation.

In situations where limited knowledge of a system exists and the ratio of data points to variables is small, variable selection methods can often be misleading. Freedman (Am Stat 37:152–155, 1983) demonstrated how common it is to select completely unrelated variables as highly “significant” when the number of data points is similar in magnitude to the number of variables. A new type of model averaging estimator based on model selection with Akaike’s AIC is used with linear regression to investig...

Scientific discoveries and innovations have served as the backbone for technological advancements, which can impart societal benefits and address critical needs in areas such as public health. For example, the modern hip implant has proven to be an effective treatment for joint-related diseases like arthritis. In the procedure, artificial joints are used to replace damaged or worn joints which can restore mobility and relieve concomitant pains. Today, many materials and implant parameters such a...

Abstract Background High body mass index (BMI) has long been recognized as a risk factor for post-operative complication among total hip arthroplasty (THA) patients. However, recent studies showed mixed results in the effect of high BMI on surgical outcomes. Our study is to examine the association of pre-operative BMI with complication incidence, stratified by age and sex. Methods We queried the ACS NSQIP database to identify patients who underwent elective primary THA between 2012-2016. We exam...

Ceramic coatings may prolong the lifetime of joint implants. Certain ions and wear debris may however lead to negative biological effects. SiN-based materials may substantially reduce these effects, but still need optimization for the application. In this study, a combinatorial deposition method enabled an efficient evaluation of a range of Si–Fe–C–N coating compositions on the same sample. The results revealed compositional gradients of Si (26.0–33.9 at.%), Fe (9.6–20.9 at.%), C (8.2–13.9 at.%)...

Primary and revision arthroplasties are increasing worldwide, as are periprosthetic joint infections (PJI). The management of PJI requires surgery, the strategy of which is dictated by the acute or chronic nature of the infection, with an exchange of the implant in the event of a chronic PJI or in the case of recurrence with the same pathogen. We report the case of a 63-year-old man with 2 episodes of Streptococcus dysgalactiae subsp. equisimilis PJI within 9 months. Based on clinical suspicion ...

Abstract Background Advances in perioperative care and growing demand for hospital beds has progressively reduced the length of stay in lower limb arthroplasty. Current trends in population demographics and fiscal climate has also added to this change. Individual institutions have reported good outcomes with outpatient hip and knee arthroplasty. Debate remains regarding the safety of this practice, the optimal protocol, and the applicability in different subsections of population. The primary pu...

: Adverse reaction to metal debris released from the taper-trunnion junction of modular metal-on-polyethylene (MoP) total hip replacements (THRs) is an issue of contemporary concern. Therefore, a hip simulator was used to investigate material loss, if any, at both the articulating and taper-trunnion surfaces of five 32-mm metal-on-cross-linked-polyethylene THRs for 5 million cycles (Mc) with a sixth joint serving as a dynamically loaded soak control. Commercially available cobalt-chromium-molybd...

Abstract Background As revision surgeries of total hip arthroplasty are going to increase, success or failure of revised implants is a fundamental aspect in the orthopaedic field. Today, slight is known about the success rate of revised total hip arthroplasty when the femoral head is substituted on a retained stem. Question We wanted to investigate if the interposition of a stem taper adapter between the paired elements can influence this rate of success. Methods From a total of more than 1000 r...

Objective The increasing demand for total hip arthroplasty (THA) combined with limited resources in healthcare puts pressure on decision-makers in orthopaedics to provide the procedure at minimum costs and with good outcomes while maintaining or increasing access. The objective of this study was to analyse the development in productivity between 2005 and 2012 in the provision of THA. Design The study was a multiple registry-based longitudinal study. Setting and participants The study was conduct...
