Primary total hip arthroplasty arthroplasty in Kashmir, one to five year clinico-radiologic results

Author(s): Jawed A Bhat, NA Mir and Hanan
Abstract: A prospective study was conducted to determine the clinical and radiographic results of primary total hip arthroplasty in a series of patients who were followed for 1-5 years in a university hospital in Kashmir.
113 patients underwent total hip arthroplasty. Six patients were lost to follow-up and six died leaving 101 patients for final evaluation. Bilateral hip replacement at a single stage was done in a case of avascular necrosis, whereas two patients underwent staged hip replacement. The average age of the patients at the time of index operation was 63.6 years. The duration of follow-up averaged five years.
