Breaking News: FUNNY BONES, fragment #2

This blogpost represents a continuation of an earlier post, entitled (not surprisingly) "Funny Bones, fragment #1". Click HERE to review that background information.

Authors' Note: Owing to impairment of blood flow, fracture of the femoral neck, a risk for active seniors, may result in the subsequent need for hip replacement. The most common cause for hip-joint replacement, however, remains osteoarthritis.


Asked the hippo, "Some points hypothetic:

Will I get my new hip-joint, prosthetic

Under full anaesthetic?

Is the implant synthetic?

And post-op, is your staff empathetic?"
Dr G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022

Author's Note: Hip replacement has become a surgical procedure that is frequently performed in humans, and is making inroads into veterinary practice in dogs and cats. Its role in jungle creatures and zoo inhabitants remains to be developed, parenthetically.
