This article is a research undertook to find out the views and experiences of surgeons, nurses and therapists regarding the use of hip precautions. This study is a qualitative experiment through semi-structured telephone interviews, where the 16 participants include occupational therapists, physiotherapists, surgeons and nurses. However, as a result, the views varied between the clinicians regarding hip precautions, which might be due to the differences in surgical opinion and lack of evidence as to whether precautions affect the risk of dislocation. This qualitative research article has relevance to occupational therapy practice, as occupational therapists are involved in applying hip precautions and advising patients on how to carry out daily activities as safely and independently as possible.
Osteonecrosis has become a subject of interest amongst orthopaedic surgeons predominantly during the last four to five decades.
There are several etiological factors of osteonecrosis of femoral head. They may be traumatic (after femoral neck fractures or dislocations of hip joint), idiopathic, corticosteroid induced, alcohol abuse, following infection, haemoglobinopathy, post¬irradiation, Caisson's disease, Gaucher's disease and associated with gout.
To conclude, the failure of the Depuy ASR and ASR XL hip replacement systems is the result of many factors. The inability to simulate in situ conditions lead to the inability to design and implement and affect mean of hip arthroplasty devices. The relative lack of device longevity was related to design assumptions and the failure to observe several different issues regarding complexity and surgical ability, whilst focusing on having innovative production techniques and strong market share.

Bone Quantity and Quality
Bone quality and quantity is critical for selection the location of implant placement, avoid important anatomical landmark and selecting appropriate implant length and diameter.
Based on the bone quantity, Juodzbalys et al classified alveolar ridge into 3 types by using panoramic x-ray, CBCT, and bone sounding technique. It was concluded that Alveolar height is >10 mm and width is >6 mm is the optimal bone quantity for implant placement, while the height <4 mm and the width is<4 mm is too shallow and narrow for implant (Juodzbalys & Raustia, 2004). Although clinical judgment is important in make such decision, such guideline provide basis for sound clinical practice for clinicians and patients.
In Bone Gap, by Laura Ruby, perception is everything. The people living in the town love to gossip about everything they see, whether it be accurate or not. For this reason, point of view adds a lot to the novel as the story is told from the views of many different people. The literary device of point of view is very important because the story can greatly change depending on the narrator’s own perception of what is occurring.
The human body is structured by the skeletal system which includes over 200 bones that help protect vital organs. There are five classifications of bones which are long bone, short bone, flat bone, sesamoid bone, and irregular bone, and each bone is classified within one of the categories by their gross anatomical features (Allen and Harper 2014). A bone is classified as long when the length of the bone is longer than the width like the femur bone is. Short bones are classified by having the same measurement of length and width and are what make up the tarsals and carpals. Sesamoid bones are small bones that are found in tendons located in the patella and flat bones are flat, of course, and may be curved slightly like the ribs are. Lastly,
Bilateral femoral fractures have always been considered by trauma surgeons to indicate a more
severe injury and are commonly the result of a very high-energy impact with an increased risk of
morbidity and mortality. The term “damage control orthopedics” (DCO) was coined for an
individualized treatment concept for multiple trauma patients with bone injury. The strategy of
the delayed secondary-definitive internal osteosynthesis after temporary external fixation and
support in patients may reduce “second hit” to those severe multiple trauma patients and
minimize the morbidity and mortality. However, the optimal criteria for defining which patients
should be managed by the DCO strategy is not yet clear, and the assessment of systemic damage
inflicted by surgery was mainly based on clinical observations by experienced surgeons.
Your body has about 10 systems that work together to complete a human being. This is studied by a branch of biology called anatomy. Anatomy is the study of body structures of humans, animals, and other living organisms. There are different types of anatomy like human anatomy, zootomy anatomy (animal), and phytotomy anatomy (plant) (Nordqvist, Christian, “What Is Anatomy?”). Students who plan to become part of the medical field are required to take anatomy along with biochemistry. Biochemistry is the study of chemical reactions inside the body. Doctors, pharmacists, and physicians are required to take many other biology and chemistry classes, but anatomy and biochemistry are the two major subjects studied to join the medical field. Without these courses a doctor, a pharmacist, or a physician would not know the basics of a human structure, the reactions and acids inside a human’s body. To become part of the medical field it is mandatory to study anatomy and have knowledge of each of the systems along with biochemistry.
As the end of high school draws near for me, I wonder how much have I learned the past few years? How much have I grown and have I evolved into a better person than I was before? Many adolescents and preteens go through a phase where they realize a truth in their life, and that becomes the catalysts of their growth into adulthood. Rule of The Bone by Russell Banks included a main character called Bone, he was a disturbed child named Chappie whose early life consisted with alot of alcoholic and child abuse. While in The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, a boy named Arnold Spirit is grown into a neighborhood of heavy alcoholic abuse and hopelessness. Both were heavily influenced by their childhood, but as each boy
