Hip Dislocation, Congenital

Publication Title: 
International Orthopaedics

In Japan, the main reason for osteoarthritis of the hip joint is caused by dysplastic deformities. The implantation technique of cementless press-fit cup with multi-screw fixation and acetabular bone graft to reconstruct the true acetabular center is described. In addition, special design aspects of the BiCONTACT-N stem were optimized for these patients. Between January 1997 and December 1999, 29 patients (33 hips) received a BiCONTACT-N/Plasmacup-M total hip replacement. There were 28 women and one man. Average age at the time of THA of 64 (range 51-76) years.

Swaddling was an almost universal child-care practice before the 18th century. It is still tradition in certain parts of the Middle East and is gaining popularity in the United Kingdom, the United States, and The Netherlands to curb excessive crying. We have systematically reviewed all articles on swaddling to evaluate its possible benefits and disadvantages. In general, swaddled infants arouse less and sleep longer. Preterm infants have shown improved neuromuscular development, less physiologic distress, better motor organization, and more self-regulatory ability when they are swaddled.
