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 develop in the deep vein of the leg after hip replacement surgery when blood supply is cut off due to the aggressive, invasive nature of the surgery. Blood-thinning chemicals, medical TED. stockings, plus a host of physical/ psychological will be required by patients after operation. The Chronic use of Anti- inflammatory Medication... Patients are treated for arthritis with anti inflammatory medications which are expensive and come with side effects and their complications.  Medication cause stomach ulcers and intestininal damage after prolonged use. Theres also ample research thats proved when taking anti inflammatory medication, there’s a much higher risk of cardiac failure and renal damage. Metal on Metal...Problems are occurring more than ever. Theres now very strong medical evidence suggesting that metal on metal implants have failed after several decades. Research is now pointing to a myriad of health and mental illnesses associated with Cobalt poisoning. Many Scientists and Doctors have found it hard to express this, as the medical instrument industry companies are worth billions of dollars.   Follow this Link for renowned scientific articles describing the problems metal on metal joints are still creating…
  From the first official hip prosthesis implantation, and throughout the last few decades, hip prosthesis surgery and the technology behind it has undergone a sluggish evolutionary process. The methods used today have only been slightly modified since the 1970s. Prosthesis surgery still remains an aggressive, invasive and costly surgical procedure which has created unnecessary suffering and recovery times which take a toll on the patients.

    Revision surgery replaces original the materials which do not function any longer as intended, either by no longer fitting perfectly within joint sockets, or the degradation over time.  Historically hip revision surgery has been commonly needed, especially in people under the age of 65, as younger patients remain active and are most at risk of wearing down the prosthetic joints. The pelvic bones that support the prosthesis deteriorate with either age, a bad reaction to foreign materials, or disease. Revision surgery requires longer operating times, increases the risk of higher blood loss and lengthens the length of hospital stay. When dislocation occurs, the patient will need surgery under general anaesthetic. Patients will then have to endure long times of immobilisation in hospitals plus the need of a hinged orthrosis to prevent re-dislocation. Patients after revision surgery also require physiotherapy to regenerate their muscles back to optimal health.  Small incision surgery is not a viable option when performing 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, wires are required to hold the parts together until the bone has fully healed. To summarise; Revision surgery is a more complicated surgical procedure than the initial hip replacement surgery and requires a specialized prosthesis and extensive after care, adding further to the list of problems when undergoing revision surgery.
