Abstract: Introduction: Total hip arthroplasty (T.H.A) remains one of the most frequently performed reconstructive surgeries. Much work has been done in this discipline over the past years with regards to scientific investigation, clinical outcome assessment, and the treatment of complications. Methods: In this series of 30 patients with osteoarthritic hips, were treated with Cemented (15) and Uncemented (15) total hip arthroplasty between October 2013 to April 2015 and follow up was done from May 2015 to October 2015 in Sri Siddharth Medical College Hospital and research centre. Results were analysed both clinically and radio logically and functional outcome was evaluated using Harris hip score. Results: Harris hip score was used for evaluation of functional outcome which was on an average, in Cemented arthroplasty 47.87±15.57 and Uncemented arthroplasty 48.33±8.71 (P Value = 0.920) preoperatively. And Postoperatively in Cemented arthroplasty 90.07±8.04 and Uncemented arthroplasty 91.67±5.26 (P Value = 0.525). Conclusion: Functional outcome were comparably good in both the arthroplasties. Comparison was done with only one design prosthesis – Charnley’s prosthesis, duration of the study and sample size was small.
