A Study To Evaluate Functional Outcome Of Uncemented Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty Operated At Our Center

Akhil Bansal, Ravindra Singh, Mohmmad Zuber, Sanjiv Gaur


Background: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) has evolved into a reliable and suitable surgical procedure to relieve pain and restore function among patients with damaged or degenerated hip joints and chronic pain. The purpose of this study was to evaluate outcome in patients after THA operated at our center.

Methods: 150 hips in 115 patients were operated at our center and were included in the study. These patients were evaluated with Harris Hip Score before and after surgery at 1, 3, 12 month and as well as final follow up after surgery.

Results: Out of total 115 patients, 89 were male and 26 were female. The mean age was 38 years in our series with more than 62% patients with less than 40 years. Functional outcome in our series as assessed by Harris Hip score was excellent in 90.5% and good in 9.5%.

Conclusion: THA is an excellent procedure to achieve painless, mobile, stable hip in cases with advanced hip problems.
