Will glucosamine and condroitin sulfate improve the residual pain from congenital hip dysplasia in a female adult?

Will glucosamine and condroitin sulfate improve the residual pain from congenital hip dysplasia in a female adult?

Not likely: There is little clinical evidence to support these supplements. Most research has been with osteoarthritis. These supplements are safe and well tolerated by most.

What is the implication of the rod and screw in fractured femur bowing on X-ray 8 weeks post op in 58 year old male?

What is the implication of the rod and screw in fractured femur bowing on X-ray 8 weeks post op in 58 year old male?

That would be very unusual with modern rods as they are very strong...Especially to see as early as 8 weeks. If it is just on an x-ray report you need to talk to your orthopedist as it us likely nothing. Most rods are normally bowed and may bow slightly more after being inserted. ...Read more
