Congratulations to Prof Middleton on his recent publication with colleagues from Leeds, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Southampton, Oxford, and Wrightington.

His study “Risk factors influencing fracture characteristics in postoperative periprosthetic femoral fractures around cemented stems in total hip arthroplasty” was published in the Bone and Joint Open journal. The full-text can be accessed here

Hip fractures are extremely common in our elderly population here in Dorset. This research shows how these can be best treated and will inform best practice in the UK.

Prof Middleton commented “It was great to collaborate with colleagues from across the UK on this important work. We have more studies and future research planned.”
