TJA in Rare Conditions
Gunshot Wound to the Hip Resulting in a Femoral Head and Acetabulum Fracture Treated With Open Reduction and Internal Fixation and Bipolar HemiarthroplastyCombined fractures of the femoral head and acetabulum due to ballistic injuries are rare injuries, especially in the elderly. We present a case of a 70-year-old female who sustained a gunshot wound to the left hip, resulting in a comminuted femoral head fracture and posterior wall acetabular fracture. She was treated with open reduction and internal fixation of the acetabulum, as well as bipolar hemiarthroplasty for treatment of her femoral head fracture. At her 18-month follow-up visit, the patient was doing well and had no complaints.
Total Knee Arthroplasty With Patient-Specific Instrumentation to Correct Severe Valgus Deformity in a Patient With Hereditary Multiple ExostosesPatients with hereditary multiple exostosis develop several benign osseocartilaginous bulge lesions throughout the body. A 62-year-old woman presented for evaluation of worsening left knee valgus deformity, and left knee pain. She had been diagnosed with hereditary multiple exostosis at the age of 12 years. Radiographic evaluation of the left knee revealed exostoses that caused continuous bulges from cortical bone at the metaphyseal regions of the femur and tibia as well as extra-articular deformity.
