Factors Affecting Aseptic Loosening of 4750 Total Hip Replacements
Causes for failure are mainly aseptic loosening of one or both components partially due to wear of articular surfaces and partially to design.
- How long your hip replacement will last is affected by gender, age, pathology, type of the prosthesis and skill of the surgeon.
- It will be worse if you are a male patient, younger than 40 years, affected by sequelae of congenital diseases, operated by a surgeon who performed less than 400 total hip replacements.
- Furthermore, cemented cups and stems (less expensive) have a higher risk of failure compared with uncemented ones (more expensive).
