Incidence and risk factors for idiopathic hip osteoarthritis.
Inflammatory arthropathies lead to early arthritis and unique considerations when planning for THA.
The femoral head collapses when its blood supply is disrupted. Examine classification of collapse and the treatment options and associated outcomes data.
Acute femoral neck fractures can be treated with ORIF, or with Hemiarthroplasty or with THA. Examine the factors that influence the procedure and consider long term outcomes of each.
Femoral neck fractures and intertrochanteric hip fractures can fail after ORIF due to AVN or nonunion. THA is the rescue procedure. Examine the considerations when performing THA in this setting.
Hip dysplasia is associated with early onset osteoarthritis depending on the severity of joint incongruity. Examine diagnosis and indications for hip preservation.
FAI is incongruence between the ball and socket that leads to acute pain and possibly early arthritis. Examine diagnosis and surgical intervention.
