A short, useful text covering the area of total hip arthroplasty by reviewing and comparing the basic statistics of the leading implants. Total hip arthroplasty is the most frequently performed reconstructive procedure in orthopaedic surgery, with over 500,000 replacements performed world wide annually. After four decades of modern total hip replacement, many new designs and biomaterials have been introduced to address problems of fixation and wear. However, there is currently a certain amount of confusion concerning optimum design and technique due to the variety of prostheses available, incorrect and incomplete data concerning long-term results of specific prostheses and the unbiased assessment of published data. This book seeks to present a clear and concise summary of presently available information on total hip arthroplasty.
