BACKGROUND: Surgery for hip fractures within 48 hours of admission is considered standard. During the lockdown period due to the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) epidemic, our medical staff was reduced. OBJECTIVES: To compare the demographics, treatment pathways, and outcomes of patients with hip fractures during the COVID-19 epidemic and lockdown with the standard at routine times. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted of all patients who were treated surgically for hip fracture in a tertiary center during the COVID-19 lockdown period between 01 March and 01 June 2020 and the equivalent period in 2019. Demographic characteristics, time to surgery, surgery type, hospitalization time, discharge destination, postoperative complications, and 30- and 90-day mortality rates were collected for all patients. RESULTS: During the COVID-19 period, 105 patients were operated due to hip fractures compared to 136 in the equivalent period with no statistical difference in demographics. The rate of surgeries within 48 hours of admission was significantly higher in the COVID-19 period (92% vs. 76%, respectively; P = 0.0006). Mean hospitalization time was significantly shorter (10 vs. 12 days, P = 0.037) with diversion of patient discharge destinations from institutional to home rehabilitation (P < 0.001). There was a significant correlation between the COVID-19 period and lower 90-day mortality rates (P = 0.034). No statistically significant differences in postoperative complications or 30-day mortality rates were noted. CONCLUSIONS: During the COVID-19 epidemic, despite the limited staff and the lack of therapeutic sequence, there was no impairment in the quality of treatment and a decrease in 90-day mortality was noted.

BACKGROUND: The effect of surgeon experience on accuracy of digital pre-operative planning for total hip arthroplasty (THA) remains unclear. The aims of our study were to compare pre-operative planning accuracy between fellow-trained orthopaedic surgeons and residents and to explore whether surgery indication effects the prediction accuracy. METHODS: We prospectively reviewed 101 patients who underwent pre-operative digital templating for THA in our center from January 2019 to January 2020 with King Mark device. Extracted data included baseline characteristics and indication for primary arthroplasty. Pre-operative digital templating was performed separately by both a fellow-trained surgeon and a resident. Accuracy of each group was compared with the implanted components. RESULTS: The overall adequate pre-operative planning of the acetabular cup (exact or +/-1 size match) by the fellow-trained group was higher compared with the resident's group (77.2 and 64.3% respectively, p = 0.037), whereas the overall adequate pre-operative planning of the femoral stem (exact or +/-1 size match) was higher in the resident's group compared with the fellow-trained group (83.2 and 61.4% respectively, p < =0.001). The fellow-trained group showed better pre-operative planning of complex cases (developmental dysplasia of the hip and avascular necrosis of femoral head) than the resident's group. CONCLUSIONS: The experience of the planner does not significantly affect the accuracy of correctly predicting component sizes. However, in complex cases, fellow-trained surgeons should assist residents in digital pre-operative templating for THA.
