The fourth quantity of growth in Orthopaedic surgical procedure is a bit diverse from pre­ vious courses of the sequence. The editors have back attempted to give subject matters however the courses provided from the eu literature are of very fresh starting place. within the age of overall joint alternative it used to be felt to be relevant to counteract the pre­ despatched tendency to regard each joint which doesn't appear to be fit with a synthetic re­ placement. Orthopaedic surgical procedure looks encouraged via traits. In 1963, E. A. Nichol discussing intracapsular hip fractures, quoted from Alice In Wonderland in an article written for quantity 45B of the magazine of Bone and Joint surgical procedure "The Queen had just one manner of settling all problems, nice or small, "Off along with his head"!". at the present time one can paraphrase his implied critizism by means of asserting "Out with the joint". nobody doubts that joint replacements were of significant worth in treating degenerative joint adjustments, however it is already obvious that substitute operations will not be the final word resolution for treating each joint deformity. This quantity represents the ecu adventure of other sorts of surgical procedure in deal with­ ing arthrosis of the joints of the decrease limb. A reader of the Anglo-American literature will locate feedback in it which reaffirm his uneasiness in contemplating just one resolution for difficulties relating decrease limb joints. i think strongly that there are alternative routes which permit a sufferer to operate good with much less broad operations.

This is because resurfacing offers the advantage that removal ofloosened components is much easier than after total hip replacement. Loose resurfacing components can be replaced immediately if the remaining bone stock is sufficient. If the bone stock in the femoral head is inadequate the resurfacing endoprosthesis can be converted to a total hip replacement. Even simple removal of the components is a very acceptable salvage procedure providing there was a good indication for the original resurfacing procedure.

Replacement or removal of the components has occurred in 18 cases to date. Twelve of these were in patients whose resurfacing had been done for symptoms secondary to inflammatory arthrosis. These cases developed their loosening in the second and third years after resurfacing and none occurred in the first postoperative year. Of the remaining four cases one occurred in a patient with atrophic bone following multiple osteotomies which were performed for the realignment of a dysplatic hip. 5 cm diameter in the superolateral segment of the femoral head.

In considering these factors, one will note that in 4/5 of the cases arthrotic findings are less evident or unchanged 10 years after surgery.
