Surgery replaces the diseased joint with the consequent disappearance of arthritic pain, through the surgical replacement of the femoral head and the acetabulum (socket) with artificial components.
The hip joint, or coxofemoral joint, is one of the largest joints in the human body.
It is formed by two spherical bone heads, one concave (the acetabulum), the other convex (the femoral), which perform movements in all planes. The femoral head is then free to rotate within the acetabulum.
Arthroplasty is the only effective therapy for the treatment of coxarthrosis. Surgery replaces the diseased joint and the arthritic pain disappears.
Hip replacement is the only possible treatment for advanced joint degeneration.
Since 1960, the design and materials of prostheses have been progressively evolving.
The numerous models available to the orthopaedic surgeon today are divided into two major groups.
