Featured article: The final implant position of a commonly used collarless straight tapered stem design (Corail®) does not correlate with femoral neck resection height in cement-free total hip arthroplasty: a retrospective computed tomography analysis
Worlicek et al. investigated the influence of femoral neck resection height on the final three-dimensional position of a collarless straight tapered stem (Corail®). The authors asked two questions — (1) Is neck resection height correlated with version, tilt, and varus/valgus alignment of the femoral component, and (2) dependent on the resection height of the femoral neck, which area of the stem comes into contact with the femoral cortical bone?
It was demonstrated that femoral neck resection height ranging between 0 and 20.1 mm does not correlate with the final position of a collarless straight tapered stem design (Corail®).
Thematic Series: Emerging Topics
"Emerging topics" are cutting-edge subjects of Orthopaedics and Trauma, ranging from recent developments of rehab in high-level athletes to new arthroplasty designs like the dual mobility hip arthroplasty, from orthobiologics to THR taperosis. The Authors are internationally acknowledged opinion-leaders, whose view is freely shared through open access. View the collection here.
Aims and scope
The Journal of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, the official open access peer-reviewed journal of the Italian Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, publishes original papers reporting basic or clinical research in the field of orthopaedic and traumatologic surgery, as well as systematic reviews, brief communications, case reports and letters to the Editor. Narrative instructional reviews and commentaries to original articles may be commissioned by Editors from eminent colleagues. The Journal of Orthopaedics and Traumatology aims to be an international forum for the communication and exchange of ideas concerning the various aspects of orthopaedics and musculoskeletal trauma.
The Italian Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (Società Italiana di Ortopedia e Traumatologia) has elected to cover the cost of the article-processing charges for its members. The required code should be entered during the submission process and society members can obtain this by contacting Eve Rogers, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Italian Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology will also consider requests from non-society members (e.g. top scientific referees) on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Eve Rogers, email@example.com, to present your case.
