Adaptation of the femur to cemented total hip arthroplasty in dogs

Cemented total hip arthroplasty is often performed in dogs. But what reaction shows the femur to the new anatomic conditions? This clinical study, performed on fourteen dogs, gives very interesting answers to this question.

Specimens were collected from client-owned dogs that were donated after death because of causes unrelated to their cemented total hip arthroplasty (cTHA).
Mean (±SEM) dog age was 11.4±0.7 years and implant duration was 5.3±0.7 years. Implant stability was established from radiographic signs and gross mechanical stability.

Femurs were evaluated at 3 levels based on implant length: proximal stem (PS), mid-stem (MS), and distal to stem (DS). Cortical area, medullary area, and porosity were measured at each level. Implanted femurs were compared to contralateral nonimplanted femurs.

Cortical area and cortical porosity were significantly increased in implanted femurs compared to nonimplanted femurs. Cortical area was increased at the MS and DS levels, and porosity was increased at the PS and MS levels in implanted femurs. Porosity was greatest in the endosteal region at the PS and MS levels in implanted femurs.

Significant differences in femoral geometry and cortical porosity were detected after long-term stable cTHA. Net bone loss proximally and increased bone mass distally support stress shielding as a important mechanical factor associated with bone adaptation. Distribution of porosity shifts to endosteal regions after long-term cTHA.

These results suggest that significant site-specific femoral adaptation occurs in response to stable cTHA and may precede implant loosening.

Microbiota of traumatic, open fracture wounds and the mechanism of injury
Open fractures are characterized by disruption of the skin and soft tissue, which allows for microbial contamination and colonization. Preventing infection‐related complications of open fractures and other acute wounds remains an evolving challenge due to an incomplete understanding of how microbial colonization and contamination influence healing and outcomes. Culture‐independent molecular methods are now widely used to study human‐associated microbial communities without introducing culture biases. This recently online published study describes the fascinating association between the mechanism of injury and the microbiota of the wounds.
