Abstract provided by Publisher
 
For over 25 years, arthroplasty has been in general use as a means of treating degenerative changes in the coxofemoral joint. Loosening of the hip prosthesis is often observed, accompanied by bone defects in the area enveloping the prosthesis. This constitutes an indication for revision surgery.
The authors present their own technique for rehabilitation following revision hip arthroplasty using frozen morselized bone grafts. The procedures used in such cases should be highly individualized. It is necessary to apply a controlled early load on the operated limb at bedside. The authors emphasize the necessity to reduce flexion contracture of the joint. Full load on the limb is proposed between the 4th and 6th month after surgery, depending on the extent of the reconstructed bone defects.
