Some time back I set up a Facebook Group as an easier venue for discussions but for some dumb reason never really advertised it! But recently it has gained a lot more members and there are some great discussions and support happening.

The address is https://www.facebook.com/groups/total.hip.news/

See you there!

PS. I have backlog of posts but have had family and health issues to cope with.

Genetic breakthrough offers new hope to hip replacement patients

A team of Adelaide researchers have identified a gene that determines which patients are seven times more likely to have an adverse reaction to certain implants.

Tens of thousands of Australians who have had a hip replacement currently may be living with a ticking time bomb, with metal-on-metal implants in some cases causing painful tumour-like lesions.

The award-winning breakthrough by Adelaide scientists at Adelaide’s Lyell McEwin Hospital however could help doctors determine which patients are most at risk of complications and avoid using the wrong implant.
