The hip prosthesis is a major surgical technique involves the replacement of degenerate artificial hip joint. The characteristics of the materials us The hip prosthesis is a major surgical technique involves the replacement of degenerate artificial hip joint. The characteristics of the materials used in this type of prosthesis allow similar to human joint mobility. To manufacture these implants used: various metals such as stainless steel alloys, cobalt, chromium and titanium; plastic, usually polyethylene, a durable and wear-resistant material which is friction. The replacement of the hip prosthesis is indicated in cases of osteoarthritis in the joint or of rheumatoid arthritis. After surgery, patients need crutches for the next month. The prostheses have limited life due to wear of materials. ...
Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique for accessing the interior of the joint through small holes in the skin. Through Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique for accessing the interior of the joint through small holes in the skin. Through a small caliber lens inside the knee is observed and treat various injuries without opening.

This type of arthroscopy is indicated to diagnose certain problems of pain or blockage in the hip, for the extraction of intra-articular loose bodies, for breaks labrum (stabilizer cartilage of the femoral head) and the impingement (excess friction in the movements of the hip).

The shoulder prosthesis is the replacement of the joint by a plastic part by surgery, where it is indicated that the shoulder joint is seriously damaged by osteoarthritis. With this technique a reduction of pain and restoration of mobility is achieved. In the shoulder prosthesis a metal part to the humeral head and a piece of polyethylene shoulder blade, both sealed with cement or embedded is set. There is also the reverse shoulder prosthesis, aimed at patients aged 60 years, who returned shoulder mobility. In the inverted, in place of the humeral head is placed the receiver and where the receiver should be, the humeral head is placed.

The main causes of this injury include age, repetitive in certain work activities or throwing sports movement, and poor blood supply to the tendons of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscles, a fact that favors degenerative processes. Symptoms of shoulder tendinitis are inflammatory pain, the pressure on the tendon, pain in performing active movements of the shoulder and pain upon stretching the muscle tendon. The appropriate treatment for shoulder tendonitis is physiotherapy. ...
It is an injury to a shoulder area known as the Glenoid Labrum or impeller, and the name is an acronym for its acronym in English: S uperior L abrum from A to P osterior nterior (SLAP).
