Abstract [en]

Background: In obese patients, total hip arthroplasty (THA) can be technically demanding with increased perioperative risks. The aim of this prospective cohort study is to evaluate the effect of body mass index (BMI) on radiological restoration of femoral offset (FO) and leg length as well as acetabular cup positioning.

Methods: In this prospective study, patients with unilateral primary osteoarthritis (OA) treated with THA between September 2010 and December 2013 were considered for inclusion. The perioperative plain radiographs were standardised and used to measure the preoperative degree of hip osteoarthritis, postoperative FO, leg length discrepancy (LLD), acetabular component inclination and anteversion.

Results: We included 213 patients (74.5% of those considered for inclusion) with a mean BMI of 27.7 (SD 4.5) in the final analysis. The postoperative FO was improper in 55% and the LLD in 15%, while the cup inclination and anteversion were improper in 13 and 23% of patients respectively. A multivariable logistic regression model identified BMI as the only factor that affected LLD. Increased BMI increased the risk of LLD (OR 1.14, 95% CI 1.04 to 1.25). No other factors included in the model affected any of the primary or secondary outcomes.

Conclusion: Increased BMI showed a negative effect on restoration of post-THA leg length but not on restoration of FO or positioning of the acetabular cup. Age, gender, OA duration or radiological severity and surgeon’s experience showed no relation to post-THA restoration of FO, leg length or cup positioning.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Tobacco smoking is an injurious habit associated with a number of chronic disorders. Its influence on disc metabolism and degeneration including lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) has been investigated in the literature.

PURPOSE: We aimed to investigate whether tobacco smoking is an independent risk factor for undergoing surgical intervention for LSS.

STUDY DESIGN/SETTING: This is a prospective cohort study.

PATIENT SAMPLE: The patient sample of 331,941 workers was derived from a Swedish nationwide occupational surveillance program for construction workers.

OUTCOME MEASURE: The outcome measure included the incidence of undergoing surgical intervention for LSS in tobacco smokers versus no smokers.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: At inclusion, age, sex, body mass index (BMI), workers' job title, and self-reported smoking habits were registered. The workers were divided into four categories: never smoked, former smoker, moderate current (1-14 cigarettes/day), and heavy current (≥15 cigarettes/day). Patients who underwent a surgically treated LSS were defined using the relevant International Classification of Diseases (ICD) disease code derived from the Swedish National Patient Register.

RESULTS: A total of 331,941 participants were included in the analysis. Forty-four percent of the participants were non-smokers, 16% were former smokers, 26% were moderate smokers, and 14% were heavy smokers. The vast majority of construction workers were males (95%). During the average follow-up of 30.7 years, 1,623 participants were surgically treated for LSS. The incidence rate ratio (IRRs) of LSS varied across smoking categories, with the highest values found in heavy smokers. Compared with non-smokers, all smoking categories show an increased incidence of surgically treated LSS. The findings were consistent even when the comparison was performed for participants with BMIs between 18.5 and 25 and for participants aged between 40 and 74 years.

CONCLUSIONS: Tobacco smoking is associated with an increased incidence of surgically treated LSS. The effect seems to be dose related, whereby heavy smokers have a higher risk than moderate or former smokers.
