Abstract provided by Publisher
Background. Problems encountered during revision hip arthroplasty are presented, based on 30 years of experience at the Orthopedic Clinic of the Medical University of Lodz.
Material and methods. During this period of time 96 cases (5,13%) with aseptic hip loosening were diagnosed. All patients were evaluated clinically based o the Merle d’Aubigne-Postel criteria, and radiologically by means of De Lee and Gruen migration zones.
Results. In our material hip loosening was most frequently observed in cases where a McKee-Farrar hip prosthesis had been used, and in cases with a PM uncemented acetabulum or uncemented Mittelmeier pin.
Conclusions. The study showed that surgical technique plays the most significant role in aseptic loosening of hip replacement. The aseptic loosening of hip prostheses should be diagnosed early, and revision hip arthroplasty should be performed as soon as possible. This surgery must be preformed in specialized centers with adequate equipment and a team of experienced surgeons.
