Bipolar hemiarthroplasty for fracture of femoral neck: Clinical review with Special emphasis on prosthetic motion by radiological evaluation
To assess Bipolar hemiarthroplasty for fracture of femoral neck: clinical review with special emphasis on prosthetic motion by radiological evaluation.
Material and Method: All the patients were assessed post-operative radiologically at 1 ½, 3 and 6 months follow up period. All patients were evaluated with a detailed history especially whether there were any medical conditions associated with the occurrence of the injury like epilepsy, stroke, diabetic mellitus, cardiac aliments etc. Any external wounds were noted. Diagnosis was established clinically and confirmed by radiographs. Through local and systemic clinical examinations was carried out and skin traction was applied to affected extremity haemodynamic status of patients was assessed and treated accordingly. Diabetic and hypertensive status was noted and brought under control before surgery.
Result: Motion between inner and outer component also occurred during initial and late phase but comparatively less than expected. Taking all these findings into consideration we have come to the conclusion that though theoretically it was expected that the motion between inner and outer component should be more than outer component and the acetabulum.
Conclusion: In contrast, the outer joint, which consists of a horseshoe-shaped acetabulum and a round acetabular cup, is not perfectly congruent and can contain some synovial fluid. Thus, the outer joint is more lubricated than the inner joint, and motion is more likely to occur at the outer joint.
