A hyponatremia protocol based on NICE guidance was then developed and agreed with STHT’s endocrinology department and a second audit cycle was initiated. Comparison of Palacos R+G with Copal C+G sensitivities in infected hip hemiarthroplasties between at a tertiary centre. One patient had MUA, 5 patients had Revision arthroplasty and 6 patients had excision arthroplasty as the definitive procedure. Incidence of dislocation following hip hemiarthroplasty was 2.5% of which 83% dislocated within six weeks of primary surgery. All patients with revision arthroplasty were fully weight bearing while those with excision arthroplasty had limited mobility with hoist transfer at the time of discharge. This study reinforces the predictive power of early RSA data for long term migration.

Clinicians and researchers from Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust have been awarded funding to trial a new treatment for frequent falls in patients with advanced Parkinson’s.
