Schuetz, M. - Perka, C.

This textbook accumulates the latest global knowledge on periprosthetic fractures, including all relevant anatomical regions, surgical pitfalls, complex cases, and a brand new comprehensive Unified Classification System, (UCS) on periprosthetic fractures, combining the original Vancouver classification with the AO/OTA Fracture and Dislocation Classification. Carefully selected case studies illustrate and describe individual solutions for often problematic fracture situations, providing comprehensive information from experts globally. Orthopedic and trauma surgeons will be able to expand their knowledge regarding:Risk factors and assessment of periprosthetic fractures and the patientA new Unified Classification System (UCS)Options and choices of fracture fixations techniques as well as more complex revisions or reconstructive proceduresMore than 350 pages containing superb illustrations and images. PERIPROSTHETIC FRACTURE MANAGEMENT.

Periprosthetic fractures are certainly on the rise now and in certain parts of Europe, they are the second commonest cause of revision surgery. The causes include significant trauma following a fall, even around well-fixed and well-positioned implants.

Periprosthetic fractures of the femur in association with total hip arthroplasty are increasingly common and often difficult to treat. Patients with periprosthetic fractures are typically elderly and frail and have osteoporosis. No clear consensus exists regarding the optimal management strategy because there is limited high-quality research.

The purposes of this study were to demonstrate management of the periprosthetic fractures after TKA with a stem extension, to report treatment outcomes, and to determine whether dual-plate fixation is superior to single-plate fixation regarding the radiographic bone union time and incidence of metal failure.This retrospective study included 15 knees with periprosthetic fractures after TKA using a stem … Periprosthetic fractures are increasing in frequency as the numbers of patients with hip and knee arthritis undergo total joint arthroplasty and life expectancy continues to rise. Epidemiological studies have shown that the joint replacement population is growing faster …

The periprosthetic fracture management course addresses both fracture fixation and revision arthroplasty and is targeted at senior, experienced consultant (practicing) surgeons. The course consists of eight modules: General principles; Revision arthroplasty around the hip; Revision around the knee; Fracture fixation with implant retention Postoperative fractures. Most periprosthetic femoral fractures occur postoperatively. A treatment algorithm has been developed based on the excellent Vancouver Periprosthetic Femur Fracture Classification system [5]. Treatment is based primarily on fracture location and secondarily on implant fixation status and remaining bone quality.

Management of Intraoperative Periprosthetic Femur Fractures The optimal management of the intraoperative fracture is based upon the specific fracture type. If recognized during surgery, most surgeons recommend fixation of these fractures along with modifications to ensure stem fixation stability.
