Abstract provided by Publisher
Background. Clinical material collected from 1989 to 1999 from three orthopedic centers is discussed: the Orthopedic Clinic at the Center for Postgraduate Medical Education in Otwock, the Orthopedic Clinic at the Lublin Academy of Medicine, and the Orthopedic Clinic at the Warsaw Academy of Medicine.
Material and methods. During this period 511 patients with an average age of 66 were treated. The authors explain the reasons for aseptic loosening of hip prostheses, the types of implants replaced, and the methods of surgical treatment.
Analysis of results. The importance of correct surgical technique and modern cementing methods during primary arthroplasty for the duration of good prosthesis functioning is discussed. A good outcome from revision arthroplasty can be expected only when the decision to treat is made early. The authors confirm the usability of impacted camcellous allografts for revision hip arthroplasty. Complications during and after surgery are also discussed. Difficulties in the clinical and radiological evaluation of treatment outcomes caused by differing criteria used in each orthopedic treatment are also discussed in this article.
Conclusions. In the conclusion the authors propose rules for surgical treatment to reduce the number of revision procedures.
