Resection arthroplasty: middle- and long-term results

, : Resection arthroplasty: middle- and long-term results. Archives of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery 108(5): 279-281

Conclusions on results after resection arthroplasty were made by analyzing patient records with regard to completed questionnaires. Sixty-four patients were followed up for 2.1-15.9 years postoperatively. The indications for explanation were septic or aseptic loosening with extensive bony destruction. The average age of the patients was 69.7 years. A specially prepared questionnaire summarized each patient's condition at that time. Twenty-five patients had no discomfort in the operated hip: 25 others reported occassional mild pain during increased strain, and six patients complained of constant pain. All patients were able to walk with aids. In six cases the infection recurred. In summary, we can say that the goal of maintaining an infection- and pain-free hip was achieved in over 90% of cases, but the functional weight-bearing capacity was limited. Resection arthroplasty appears to be a successful treatment; it relieves the patients from pain and infection and can often end a long series of surgical operations.
