Abstract

Rapid destructive arthritis of the hip is a rare entity with unknown pathogenesis and outcome. First described by Forestier in 1957, it is characterized by a rapidly progressive hip disease resulting in rapid destruction of both the femoral and acetabular aspects of the hip joint, with almost complete disappearance of the femoral head within a few months. Since the original description, case reports and small series have been reported, and many names have been proposed to describe the rapid destruction of the femoral head and occasionally the acetabulum. Initial presentation includes acute hip pain with the lack of radiographic evidence of joint destruction, rapidly progressing to complete vanishing of the proximal femur within a few months. This article summarizes the related literature aiming to present the current concepts for the diagnosis and treatment of rapid destructive arthritis of the hip.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 August 2015.
All research outputs
#11,135,253
of 12,519,471 outputs
Outputs from European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology
#272
of 570 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#193,704
of 235,234 outputs
Outputs of similar age from European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology
#21
of 92 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,519,471 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 570 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.7. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 235,234 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 92 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
