To summarize the surgical technique and the effectiveness of Becker V-shaped lateral rotation osteotomy in total hip arthroplasty (THA) for Crowe type IV development dislocation of the hip (DDH). Between January 2000 and December 2009, 18 patients (22 hips) with Crowe type IV DDH underwent THA. There were 3 males and 15 females with an average age of 54 years (range, 41-75 years). The unilateral hip was involved in 14 cases and bilateral hips in 4 cases. All patients had over anteversion of the femoral neck, with the acetabular anteversion angle of (21.28 +/- 4.87) degrees, the femoral neck anteversion angle of (59.06 +/- 1.44) degrees, and combined anteversion angle of (80.33 +/- 1.55) degrees. All the patients had limb-length discrepancy, ranged from 1.0 to 3.5 cm (mean, 2.5 cm). Before operation, gluteus medius muscle strength was grade 2 in 17 hips and grade 3 in 5 hips; severe or moderate claudication was observed in 13 and 5 patients, respectively. Trendelenburg sign was positive in all patients. Preoperative Harris score was 30.00 +/- 6.32. Cementless prosthesis was used. Becker V-shaped lateral rotation osteotomy and subtrochanteric shortening with overlapping femoral resection were performed, and proximal femoral shaft splitting was performed on 21 hips having narrow bone marrow cavity. All the cases achieved primary healing of incision. No complication of anterior dislocation, deep infection, nerve traction injury, or femoral uncontrolled fracture occurred. All the cases were followed up 3-12 years (mean, 8 years). Postoperative X-ray films showed that the initial fixation result of femoral prosthesis was excellent in 18 hips and good in 4 hips. Bone healing of osteotomy stump was obtained at 3-6 months (mean, 5 months) after operation. Affected limb prolonged for 2.5-3.5 cm (mean, 3.0 cm) at 1 year after operation; limb-length discrepancy was 0.5-1.5 cm (mean, 1.0 cm). The gluteus medius muscle strength was restored to grade 4 in 5 hips and grade 5 in 17 hips. At last follow-up, 13 patients had no claudication, and 5 patients had mild claudication; Trendelenburg sign was negative in 15 cases and was positive in 3 cases; the Harris score was significantly improved to 91.89 +/- 3.22; all showing significant difference when compared with preoperative ones (P < 0.05). At last follow-up, the acetabular anteversion angle, the femoral neck anteversion angle, and combined anteversion angle were (19.33 +/- 4.49), (13.33 +/- 5.70), and (32.67 +/- 5.35) degrees, respectively, all showing significant differences when compared with preoperative ones (P < 0.05). No aseptic loosening, osteolysis, or rediolucent line was found around the femoral component. No implant subsidence, stem varus, or revision occurred. Becker V-shaped lateral rotation osteotomy is a safe and predictable method to treat type Crowe type IV DDH.

BACKGROUND: Anatomic medullary locking (AML) femoral prosthesis is circular cylinder and has satisfactory efficacy. However, some scholars found the complications such as thigh pain, loss of bone at the proximal end of the femur, and wearing-related osteolysis. F2L femoral prosthesis is cone-shaped and also has satisfactory efficacy, but the thigh pain incidence is relatively low. OBJECTIVE: To compare the intermediate-long term results of AML versus F2L in total hip arthroplasty. METHODS: Between November 1997 and January 2005, we retrospectively reviewed 60 patients (66 hips) undergoing total hip arthroplasty using biological femoral prosthesis. At follow-up examination, 58 hips in 52 patients were available for clinical and roentgenographic review. 26 AML devices were placed in 24 patients, and 32 F2L devices were placed in 28 patients. The AML group were reviewed with an average of 12.7 years follow-up (range 10 years and 3 months to 15 years and 5 months), while the F2L group were reviewed with an average of 9.5 years follow-up (range 8 years and 3 months to 11 years and 1 month). The clinical results were evaluated with Harris methods and X-ray examination. Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed to evaluate the survival of femoral component. End point was radiographical loosening or revision of the femoral component for any reason. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: There were no significant difference between AML and F2L about Harris score in the latest follow-up (P > 0.05). After surgery, the incidence of thigh pain was significantly lower in F2L group than that in AML group (P < 0.05). In AMKL group, the stress-shielding 1 level was observed in 21 hips (81%), and 2 level in five hips (19%); in F2L group, the stress shielding 0 level was observed in 20 hips (62%) and 1 level in 12 hips (38%). There were significant differences between the two groups (P < 0.05). The stress shielding showed significant differences between the two groups (P < 0.05). The incidence of osteolysis in F2L group was significantly lower than that in AML group (P < 0.05). Kaplan-Meier analysis showed that, the survival rate of both AML and F2L components were 1.0 (95% confidence interval: 0.98-1.00). Experimental findings indicate that, both AML and F2L femoral prosthesis have a satisfactory long-term efficacy after total hip arthroplasty, and the incidence of thigh pain and osteolysis is significantly lower in F2L group. © 2014, Journal of Clinical Rehabilitative Tissue Engineering Research.
