The focus of this report is directed toward an uncommon reason for RTHA, namely prosthetic component fractures.
For these reasons, single-modular femoral components in RTHA have gained recent popularity.
Treatment options were discussed with the patient and he elected to undergo RTHA. A standard posterior approach to the hip was performed.
The patient had an uncomplicated initial postoperative course and was doing well 4 years following RTHA when he presented with pain in his right hip after another ground level fall.
As illustrated in this case, RTHA can be exceedingly challenging when dealing with stem fractures.
An additional consideration in RTHA is advancements in ETO surgical technique that have mitigated many of the advantages that a modular system allows.
In total, 71 RTHA, 54 EASO, 31 COHA, 30 GHOW, 28 BADO, 16 BAEA, and 12 BWHA were selected.
The TP values were significantly lower in COHA than in RTHA, BADO, and EASO (P = .02).
Eosinophils were significantly lower in BAEA than in RTHA (P < .001).
Whereas, RTHA and GHOW reference values from birds in a rehabilitation setting in this study were similar to previously reported values, BAEA and COHA reference values differed, likely because of the stress of rehabilitation.
Data from RTHA in this study were similar to values reported for free-ranging (19) and permanently captive (11) animals, although free-ranging birds tended to have a somewhat lower monocyte count (mean [SD], 0.21 [+ or -] 0.46 x [10.sup.3] cells/[micro]L).
(34) Hematologic values for BWHA are similar to those reported for free-living RTHA (19) and permanently captive common buzzards (Buteo buteo), (12) although RTHA tended to have a somewhat lower monocyte count (0.21 [+ or -] 0.46 x [10.sup.3] cells/[micro]L).
