Abstract: Introduction: Evaluation of long term outcomes of an operative procedure is important to determine the durability of the procedures like total hip replacement (THR). Patient derived outcome scales have become increasingly important to surgeons and clinical researchers for measuring improvement in function after surgery. It provides a means for comparison of the results of different clinical interventions which may lead to any changes in operative technique, implant design, type of joint that occurs over time
Methodology: On admission to the ward, a detailed history of the patients was taken. This included age, sex, occupation, complaints, associated medical illness. Following this, they were subjected to a thorough clinical examination and general condition was assessed and accordingly corrective measures were taken to correct the general being of the patients.
Results: In our study, out of 56 patients, there were 3(5.4%) cases of Heterotrophic ossification identified in the follow up X- Ray, two were Brooker grade 1 and one was Brooker grade 2 without limitation of movements.
Conclusion: In this modified approach, the posterior capsule was intact and the anterior capsule was repaired which provides a soft tissue envelope around the joint. This may give additional stability against dislocation.
