Abstract

Total hip replacement (THR) is an effective intervention with a good cost/benefit ratio. Worldwide, each year it brings relief in the form of improved function and decreased pain to at least half a million patients with severe osteoarthritis (OA).

Some changes have been introduced after careful testing and controlled trials, many of them without. In spite of this, the experience of most large follow-up series, including the Scandinavian national implant registries, show a gradual improvement in the success rate of THR with increased surgeon experience and...

Total hip replacement (THR) is an effective intervention with a good cost/benefit ratio. Worldwide, each year it brings relief in the form of improved function and decreased pain to at least half a million patients with severe osteoarthritis (OA). Since the introduction by Charnley more than 30 years ago, the basic concept remains much the same, but with a multitude of changes in details of surgical procedure and implant design. Some changes have been introduced after careful testing and controlled trials, many of them without. In spite of this, the experience of most large follow-up series, including the Scandinavian national implant registries, show a gradual improvement in the success rate of THR with increased surgeon experience and improved procedures [7]. © 2009 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
