When things start falling apart...... Dislocation   after   a   hip   prosthesis   is   likely   to   occur   within   the   first   10–12   weeks.   The   ball   and socket   joint,   which   are   part   of   the   prosthesis   are   sometimes   smaller   than   the   parts   of   the   natural joint   and   can   move   out   of   place   if   the   patient   moves   the   hip   in   certain   positions. This   problem   will require further more complicated surgery. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)... Deep   vein   thrombosis   is   when   a   blood   clot   starts   developing   in   the   deep   vein   of   the   leg   after   hip replacement   surgery   because the   blood   supply   is   cut   off   due   to   the   aggressive   and   invasive nature of the surgery . Blood-thinning   medications   and   TED   stockings   used   after   surgery   are   intended   to   minimize   the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis. The Chronic use of Anti- inflammatory Medication... Many patients are treated for arthritis with anti inflammatory medications which can be very expensive and come with complications.  Medication can cause stomach ulcers and small intestine damage after prolonged use. There’s a risk when taking anti inflammatory medication that it can cause cardiac failure and renal damage. Metal on Metal...Problems are occuring more than ever. There is now medical evidence to suggest that metal on metal implants have been failing after several decades.

From the first official hip prosthesis surgical implantation, then problems throughout the 1960s, which still remain, hip prosthesis surgery and the technology used has undergone a slow evolutionary process. The methods used today have only slightly modified since the 1970s. Prosthesis surgery still remains a very aggressive, invasive and costly surgical procedure which brings unnecessary suffering and long recovery times. Here is the short list from the long list of problems related to today’s Hip Replacement Surgery.

    Revision surgery is a procedure which replaces original prosthesis parts which have ceased functioning or no longer fit perfectly within joint sockets. Most times after hip prosthesis surgery, revision surgery is needed, especially in people under the age of 65 as younger patients remain active and are most at risk of wearing down joint parts.  The pelvic bones that support the prosthesis deteriorate with either age, a bad reaction to foreign materials from the body, or from disease. Revision surgery involves longer operating times, increased blood loss and increases the length of hospital stay. When dislocation occurs after total hip replacement the patient will require surgery under general anaesthetic. Afterwards the patient will have to endure long times immobilisation in a hospital bed and the need of a hinged orthosis to prevent re-dislocation. There will also be out patient physiotherapy necessary to strengthen muscles. Small incision surgery is not possible for revision surgery. When revision surgery is performed it can be difficult for surgeons to remove the prosthesis. This can also depend on the quality and quantity of bone left behind after the implant has been removed. The trochanter bone may also need to be cut  in order to remove the implant and wires are required to hold the parts together until the bone has fully healed. Revision surgery is a more complicated surgical procedure than the initial hip replacement surgery and requires a specialized prosthesis and extensive after care, adding to the list of problems of undergoing revision surgery.
