Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hip diseases include a wide range of miscellaneous disorders implying degenerative, inflammatory, and traumatic pathogenesis. Arthritis of the hip represents the most common and treated pathology, with total hip arthroplasty (THA) as the index procedure for the last 50 years. Nevertheless, new advances in diagnostic imaging tools allow us to explore the hip and whole pelvis with more precision and accuracy to achieve the goal of long-lasting prosthetic implants and a reduced risk of failure and complications. In the modern scenario of personalized medicine and precision surgery, it is mandatory to develop novel approaches to comprehend hip anatomy and its variability to improve the understanding of bone disease and the potential risks at the bone–implant interface and consequent bone loss.

In this Special Issue, titled “Diagnostic Tools and Therapeutic Strategies for Hip Diseases”, we aim to solicit manuscripts that highlight the recent developments and advances in diagnostic imaging for primary and revision reconstructive surgery, 3D modeling and printing applications for total hip arthroplasty, and finite element analysis simulation of THA failure patterns. The future treatment of hip and pelvis degenerative disease relies on regenerative medicine and bone tissue engineering, and therefore, original research and new perspectives about 3D bioprinting technologies are welcome in this collection.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Bioengineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
