Dr. Incavo’s recent article on the changes in hip replacement surgery, “What’s New in Hip Replacement,” was recently published in the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, Specialty Update. The article explores some of the new information which further solidifies practices, such as the use of tranexamic acid for blood conservation and the detection of infection through alpha defensins. The in-depth article assesses studies that have enhanced knowledge of surgical approaches and the modes of failure of implants and underscores that the biggest changes have not been in surgical materials or techniques but in how surgeons will practice in the future with respect to outcomes.
