The cadmium content was analyzed in tissue samples from the femoral head, obtained perioperatively from 45 patients undergoing hip arthroplasty at the Voivodeship Hospital No. 5 in Sosnowiec. The average cadmium concentration was 0,06 ug/g in the cancellous and cortical bone, and 0,09 ug/g onm the articular surface. No differences were found in the cadmium content between males and females, nor were age a differentiating factor. Increased cadmium content was observed, however, in the cancellous and cortical bone from patients smoking more than 20 cigarettes per day. Increased cadmium content in the femoral head was found to exert a negative impact on the concentrations of calcium and magnesium.
