Radiological assessment of outcome and complications of total hip arthroplasty

Author(s): Dr. Pavankumar H Patil, Dr. Syed Natiq Hussain
Abstract: Introduction: Proximal femoral fractures fixation demonstrates overall failure rates in the range of 3%-12%, with non-union in 2% to 5%, device penetration in 2% to 12%, and varus collapse in 5%-11%. The primary indication for secondary surgery is relief of pain resulting from the aforementioned complications
Methodology: The deformity, range of movements (ROM) and limb length discrepancy were measured for all the patients in the standard proforma made for each patient. All the patients were assessed using Harris hip score
Results: Post-operative radiological complications were very few. Calcar resorption was noticed in 1 case postoperatively, and dislocation occurred in one case which was reduced by closed reduction with immobilization for 6 weeks and later followed by gait training with no evidence of further dislocations. None of the post-operative cases got infected till the last follow-up indicating satisfactory radiological outcome in total hip arthroplasty
Conclusion: The complications like aseptic loosening and particle wear requiring re-revision have not been found in our study
