TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT
A Total hip arthroplasty is the removal of damaged areas of bone from the hip joint and replacement with an artificial ball and socket joint. The head of the femur (thighbone), which is shaped like a ball, is replaced with an artificial ball and stem. The stem fits into the thigh bone and bone cement is usually used to fix the stem in place. The socket, which is part of the pelvis and shaped like a small bowl, is replaced with an artificial cup.
The hip is a “ball and socket” joint. The ball is formed by the head of the thighbone (femur) which fits snugly into the cup shaped bone in the pelvis (acetabulum). The bones are coated in cartilage, which acts as a cushion between the two bones and allows movement. The aim of total hip replacement is to relieve pain and improve movement. Total hip replacements are usually performed for people who have arthritis that is getting worse and is no longer responding to other treatments. The most common type of arthritis is osteo-arthritis, which happens with aging, congenital abnormality of the hip joint, or previous injury to the hip joint.
Total Hip Replacement Surgery
Total hip replacement, also known as total hip arthroplasty, involves the removal of damaged bone and cartilage and replacing them with prosthetic parts. A hip replacement is a procedure that replaces the hip joint with a prosthetic implant. This is also known as a hip prosthesis. A hip replacement can be done as either a complete or hemi-replacement.
Total Hip Replacement Causes
Osteoarthritis is the most common reason for hip replacement surgery. Rheumatoid and other conditions can also cause damage to the hip joints. hip fracture
Hip Replacement Procedure
Your surgeon will make an incision through layers of tissue to replace your hip. Removing diseased or damaged bone and cartilage and leaving intact healthy bone. To replace the socket damaged, the prosthetic socket is implanted into the pelvic bone.
When can the Patient return to Activity?
"Rehab starts immediately after surgery. Can start to walk with full weight on the operated leg immediately after surgery. Full range of movements is gained by the end of 1-2 months after surgery- varying on the range of movements and muscle strength of the patient before surgery."DOCTOR SUGGESTION
Total Joint Replacement
Total joint replacement refers to a surgical procedure where damaged or arthritic joints are removed and replaced by a prosthesis, a metal, ceramic, or plastic device. Prosthesis replicates normal joint movement.
Total Hip Replacement: Cemented and Uncemented
Uncemented and cemented hip arthroplasties have different ways that the prosthetic implant is attached to the bone. Cemented hip arthroplasty uses bone cement to attach the implants to the bone interface. Uncemented hip replacements are based on bone growth over implants that have been specifically designed.
Uncemented hip replacement
Uncemented hips are based on biological fixation of bone to a prosthesis’ surface coating. The first fixation can be achieved by inserting a prosthesis slightly larger that the bone-bed. This creates compression hoop stress and gives rise to a “press-fit”.
Replacement of a cementless hip
A press-fit prosthesis is also known as a cementless prosthesis. It has a porous coating or rough surface that encourages natural bone growth. The surgeon will need to use special tools to mold the bone so that it fits snugly into the prosthesis.
