Show Notes

Welcome to the OrthoJOE podcast with Dr. Marc Swiontkowski and Dr. Mohit Bhandari. In this episode of OrthoJOE, Marc and Mo are talking about the choice of a unipolar or bipolar prosthesis design for displaced femoral neck fractures which are treated with hemiarthroplasty. They discuss randomized clinical trials (scientific approach to control bias) vs registry data (real world). They also have a lively discourse about revision rates.

If you have any comments, questions, or topics you would like us to cover, please feel free to reach out so we can read your messages and possibly answer your questions during the next episode of OrthoJOE.

Talking Points:

  • Orthoevidence article: “Unipolar vs bipolar hemiarthroplasty similar in elderly displaced femoral neck fractures in elderly individuals”
  • Lessons from Mo’s large random control trial concerning fractures
    • The debate about total versus hemiarthroplasty
    • The advantage of a total hip replacement
    • The statistics of the trial
  • The need for a repository of data
  • Clinical decision-making about cementification and revision

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

How do diversity, equity, and inclusion contribute to excellence, creativity, competitive advantage, and relevance in both orthopaedic surgery and scientific publishing? How can we achieve greater diversity among authors, editors, and reviewers at top journals? What specific steps can individuals and organizations take to create a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment that provides greater opportunities for under-represented groups?  We have a mailbag!

International Consensus Meeting on VTE (with special guest Javad Parvizi)

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined once again by special guest Javad Parvizi (James Edwards Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Sidney Kimmel School of Medicine at the Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia) in a follow-up discussion focusing on international efforts to achieve consensus and standardization in orthopaedic care, with a specific focus on the recently published guidelines related to venous thromboembolism.   Links: ICM-VTE Delegates.

Total Ankle Replacement

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest Bruce Sangeorzan—Professor of Orthopaedics at the University of Washington and world-renowned foot and ankle researcher—in a lively discussion on the past, present, and future of ankle replacement.   Approximately 700,000 knee replacements are performed each year, compared with just 10,000-20,000 ankle replacements, leading to a number of questions: How does this factor affect the number of clinicians who are as skillful and comfortable in performing ankle replacement as compared with shoulder, knee, and hip replacement? How do better-designed alignment devices, improved implants, and better training affect the numbers of ankle replacements being performed each year? How soon can we reach 40,000 ankle replacements each year? What are the challenges in performing RCTs of ankle arthroplasty? Is an RCT even the right study design for this topic? What design elements seem to be most successful, especially given the space limitations in the ankle region? How do factors such as degenerative disease, BMI, activity level, and adjacent osteotomy affect the results of ankle replacement and arthrodesis?  OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions from our audience can be sent to [email protected] Resources/Links: Veljkovic AN, Daniels TR, Glazebrook MA, Dryden PJ, Penner MJ, Wing KJ, Younger ASE.
