Descriptive histomorphometric ingrowth analysis of the Zurich cementless canine total hip acetabular component.

Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, School of Veterinary Medicine, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, USA.
OBJECTIVES: To (1) determine bone contact with the outer surface and ingrowth into the perforated outer shell of the Kyon acetabular component at 2, 6, and 12 months after total hip replacement (THR) and (2) determine correlation between radiographic lucency surrounding the cup-bone interface and bone contact and ingrowth. STUDY DESIGN: Experimental

Incidence of pulmonary embolism after non-cemented total hip arthroplasty in eleven dogs: computed tomographic pulmonary angiography and pulmonary perfusion scintigraphy.

Affiliated Veterinary Specialists, Maitland, FL 32751, USA.
January, 2007
OBJECTIVE: To compare the incidence of pulmonary embolism (PE) in 11 dogs that had non-cemented total hip replacement (THR) to that reported in dogs after cemented THR. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective clinical study. ANIMALS: Large mixed breed dogs (n=11). METHODS: Thoracic computed tomographic pulmonary angiography (CTA) was performed on all dogs pre- and postoperatively. Pulmonary…

Radiographic evaluation of the Zurich cementless total hip acetabular component.

Affiliated Veterinary Specialists PA and Central Florida Veterinary Radiology PA, Maitland, 32751, USA.
August, 2006
OBJECTIVE: To radiographically evaluate the Zurich cementless total hip (ZCTH) cup and correlate lucency with clinical signs of implant instability, time since surgery, and implant generation, using zonal analysis. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study. ANIMALS: Client-owned dogs (n = 53). METHODS: Radiographs of dogs that had ZCTH arthroplasty (>1 year) were…

Annual Report 2005, The Swedish National Hip Arthroplasty Register, Department of Orthopaedics, Sahlgrenska University Hospital

Department of Orthopaedics, Sahlgrenska University Hospital
August 2006
The national quality registers are facing major changes when it comes to openness, the role of principals, financing and the increasing call for standardised information structures and internet applications. There are a number of reasons why the National Hip Arthroplasty Register is now entering a new era. Its…

Assessing the dog as a model for human total hip replacement. Analysis of 38 canine cemented femoral components retrieved at post-mortem.

Department of Engineering, Baylor University, Waco, Texas 76798-7356, USA.
January, 2005
Post-mortem retrieval of canine, cemented femoral components was analysed to assess the performance of these implants in the dog as a model for human total hip replacement (THR). Mechanical testing and radiological analysis were performed to determine the stability of the implant and the quality of the cement. Thirty-eight implants from 29 dogs were retrieved after time…

Clinical data on “Zurich Cementless”

Zurich, November 2004
“Zurich Cementless” canine THR, commercialized by Kyon AG, Zurich, was introduced to broad clinical use in February 1999, after 6 years of development (and 160 clinical cases) by Tepic and Montavon at the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Zurich. Total number of prosthesis implanted until the autumn of 2004, is about 3’000, by over 100 surgeons.

Concepts of Zurich Cementless Prosthesis

School of Veterinary Medicine, U. of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
E.S.V.O.T. September 2004, Munich
Zurich Cementless provides for an immediate and indefinitely stable anchorage of the prosthetic components by resolving two, partially coupled problems: (i) load-induced movement at bone-implant interfaces; (ii) stress shielding of the bone, particularly by conventional, stemmed, femoral components. Bone cement in a Charnley-type Total Hip Replacement (THR) accomplishes both: stability of the…

Postmortem retrieved canine THR: femoral and acetabular component interaction.

Baylor University, Department of Engineering, PO Box 97356, Waco, TX 76798, USA.
Dogs are the preferred animal model for testing of human total hip replacements (THRs). A postmortem retrieval program for clinical, cemented, canine THR was established to analyze the long-term performance of THRs in dogs and to compare that performance to postmortem retrievals of human THRs. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the interaction between the…

Zurich Cementless – a new concept in canine total hip replacement Principles of anchorage, surgical technique and results after five years of clinical experience

School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Zurich
December, 1998
In just over three decades, total hip replacement (THR) has changed the practice of orthopedic surgery, has created a whole new industry to support it and, most importantly, has improved quality of life of millions of patients to the extent unparalleled by any single procedure in the history of surgery. All of this was made possible with the advent of cemented THR. In human surgery, within the first decade following…
