Non-Infected Painful Total Hip Arthroplasty
Date: Monday 08 June 2020 | 19:00-20:00 Central European Summer
Chair:José Cordero Ampuero, Spain
    A patient operated on his/her hip complains of pain and/or is unsatisfied. You have discarded infection. What more?

  • Objectivize clinical situation: pain intensity, functional limitations, level of activity.
  • Other areas are cause of local pain: lumbar spine, abdominal hernias, genitourinary pathology.
  • Suspect: loosening without radiolucent lines or migration, too thick / rigid stems, subluxation in extreme positions.
  • Discard: poly wear, pseudotumors, particle disease, trunnionosis, ceramic fracture, ALVAL, allergies to metals.
  • Reconsider: lower limb discrepancy, inadequate offset, insufficient abductors, tightened adductors, localized trochanteritis and impingement in flex-internal rotation.
