Hip arthroplasty in the elderly patient: is it a correct indication?

, : Hip arthroplasty in the elderly patient: is it a correct indication?. La Chirurgia Degli Organi di Movimento 82(3): 211-219

The authors report the results of 54 primary hip arthroplasty implants performed in patients aged over 75 years. The cases examined demonstrated that this type of surgery is not contraindicated in elderly patients as the occurrence of complications and perioperative risks are not higher if compared with a "younger" population. Preoperative anesthesiological evaluation that is extremely accurate is required.
