Total hip replacements (THRs) are very successful procedures, but they eventually wear out and sometimes complications may develop, requiring a further operation - revision hip replacement.
A revision or `re-do' total hip replacement procedure involves the removal of the existing THR and its replacement with new components (Arthritis Research UK). This book presents orthopaedic surgeons with the latest developments, current indications and critical issues in revision hip arthroplasty, providing in depth discussion on surgical reconstruction of the hip and basic hip joint deformities. Part of the successful Mastering Orthopedic Techniques series, the book is highly illustrated with surgical photographs, operative diagrams and X-Ray images.
Other titles in the series include Total Hip Arthroplasty, Total Knee Arthroplasty, Spine Surgery, Intra-articular Fractures, and Knee Reconstruction.
