Background. Total hip replacement is the accepted treatment in young patients with advanced disorders of the hip. The paper reviews the results of total hip arthroplasties performed in young patients at our institution.
Material and methods. Twenty-eight total hip arthroplasties were performed in twenty-one young patients between 1996 and 2005. The mean age of the patient at the time of the operation was 25.8 years (range 17 to 30 years). The mean follow-up was 6 years (range 3 to 12 years).
Results. The average preoperative Harris score for this group of patients was 35.82 After an average of 6 years follow-up all hips were considered excellent, with average Harris score of 99,13. The radiographs of all patients revealed that the acetabular and femoral components were correctly positioned with no roentgenographic evidence of loosening .
Conclusion Clinical and radiological evaluation of our material showed that total hip replacement is a very good method of treatment in young patients.
