Mid-term data show that today’s dual mobility constructs can provide excellent stability and range of motion in primary and revision total hip arthroplasty when patients are at a higher risk for dislocation. Modern implant designs have successfully mitigated several major failure mechanisms in older systems.
Disparities in unilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have been well-documented, with lower utilization and higher complication rates found among African American patients. Less is known, however, about whether these racial variations are seen with same-day bilateral TKA as well.
