JCM Special Issue: “Clinical Management and Outcome of Periprosthetic Fracture”

Dear Colleagues,

The incidence of periprosthetic fractures of the lower extremity has increased over the last few years. In the literature, the rate of periprosthetic fractures is around 1%in total hip arthroplasty and from 1% up to 5% in total knee arthroplasty. The aging of population and the increasing number of primary and revision hip and knee replacements are both critical factors resulting in the increased incidence of periprosthetic fractures. Several studies have been published in the past, investigating the risk factors, postoperative morbidity and mortality risk, and management of patients with periprosthetic fractures of the hip and knee.

This issue will present a selected group of articles representing an update on the clinical management and outcome of periprosthetic fracture.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 April 2023.

JCM Special Issue: “Advances in adult Hip and Knee Surgery”

Dear EHS Members,

The Journal of Clinical Medicine (ISSN 2077-0383, http://www.mdpi.com/journal/jcm, IF = 4.242) is currently running a Special Issue entitled “Advances in adult Hip and Knee Surgery”.

JCM has decided to invite members of the European Hip Society (EHS) to submit their Hip related articles. Articles submitted by members of the EHS will be considered for a rapid review process and publication in this special issue. EHS members are encouraged to send a short abstract or tentative title to the editor Sufian S. AHMAD (sufian@ahmadortho.com) or the Editorial Office in advance (dorsey.xue@mdpi.com). Please note that JCM does not accept case reports or short/mini-reviews.

The submission deadline is 31 December 2022. For detailed information, please follow the link to the Special Issue Website at:


You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

JCM has been indexed within Scopus, SCIE (Web of Science), PubMed, PMC, and many other databases. JCM is a fully open access journal. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes. An Article Processing Charge (APC) of €2318 applies to all accepted papers. A discount of 20% could also be considered for EHS members, provided they are corresponding authors of the manuscript.

Please feel free to contact us if you need any further information. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Medicina Special Issue: THA

Dear Colleagues,

In 1891, Professor Themistocles Glück in Germany was the first to replace a femoral head in hip joints destroyed by tuberculosis using ivory, followed by Marius Smith-Petersen in 1925 using a mold arthroplasty out of glass. Further attempts in hip joint replacement followed until Sir Jon Charnely significantly advanced total hip arthroplasty in the 1960s. In the following decades, further innovations in materials and design enhanced the outcome. As a result of the enhanced survivorship and low revision rates in 2007, total hip replacement was called the “operation of the century”. However, due to an increasing number of performed total hip arthroplasties in an aging population, hip surgeons have to face various challenges in 2021 and in the near future.

The aim and scope of this Special Issue is to discuss current and future challenges in primary and revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) such as (i) primary complex THA (Perthes diseases, DDH, post-traumatic conditions, acetabular fractures, bone loss/osteolysis, osteoporosis), (ii) complication management (instability, infection, periprosthetic fractures at the femoral and acetabular site), (iii) in specific patients (young, very demanding, older adults, obesity, dissatisfied patients, when to deny a total hip), (iv) modern patient management protocols (prehabilitation, enhanced recovery protocols, fast track surgery, orthogeriatric co-management), (v) outcome analysis (focus on PROMS, predictors and strategies to improve satisfaction), (vi) revision surgery (cement in cement, modularity, dual mobility, trunnionosis, metallosis, pseudotumor), and (vii) new technologies in cutting-edge research topics (robotic surgery, virtual versus augmented reality, 3D printing, learning curves, teaching).

We are soliciting preclinical studies (anatomical, biomechanical, technical reports) and clinical studies (PROM, outcome, registry data, epidemiological), with a focus on original articles. For the submission of reviews, reporting according to the PRISMA guidelines is required. More info is HERE

The submission deadline is 31 March 2022.
