This publication will give clear advice to orthopaedic surgeons on the most up-to-date methods of revising artificial joints when there is bone stock loss. It aims to give a practical overview of the revision arthroplasty of the hip dealing not only with problems that may be dealt with by the community orthopaedic surgeons, but also those more likely to be referred to orthopaedic surgeons specialising in the area of revision arthroplasty. This practical guide and accessible reference text gives an overall picture of the present status of the resources that are available.
Though more than 500,000 total hip replacements are performed worldwide each year, their eventual failure is becoming an ever-increasing problem. This comprehensive book gives clear advice on the most up-to-date method of revision surgery for failed hip prostheses, with emphasis on the management of bone stock loss. Chapters cover the whole spectrum of revision hip arthroplasty of the hip ranging from diagnosis and management of infection to tissue banking, femoral reconstruction, impaction grafting, and acetabular revision.
Revision Hip Arthroplasty is essential reading for orthopaedic surgeons of all grades who undertake hip replacement surgery, and for those who wish to accept the more challenging complex cases. Rheumatologists, rehabilitation specialists and physiotherapists will also find this to be an invaluable source of information.
