Revisions of total hip replacements

In cases of aseptic loosening or other failures of total hip replacement, function is impaired and painful.

Revision surgery implements removal of the implants and replacement with a new prosthesis. This exchange is more invasive than at the first operation.

The risk of infection and the probability of a lack of bone stock for stable fixation is increased.
