Case study #2: Hip replacement (Mexico)

As a point of comparison, back in March I met and spoke with an American expat (let’s call her Fay) who had driven her car from Mexico to visit friends in California.

Before we ended our conversation, I noticed that Fay walked normally without limping and that she had no difficulty controlling her dog whom she held on a leash.

    Acetabular components with or without screw have similar results, but the use of screw increases the operation time significantly, while not changing the blood loss volume.
