What is revision total hip replacement ?

Total hip replacement is a surgical operation in which artificial implants are used to replace worn-out or damaged hip parts. The socket is changed out for a sturdy plastic cup that might or might not have a titanium metal casing. Your femoral head will be removed and changed out for a metal alloy or ceramic ball. A metal stem that is placed into the top of your femur is connected to the prosthetic ball.

Comparing revision surgery to a total hip replacement is not appropriate. The revision total hip replacement process is more difficult and time-consuming. To get a successful result, substantial planning is necessary, along with the use of specialized implants and instruments.

Total Hip Replacement

Why is it done?

The main objective of hip revision surgery is to fix an artificial hip implant that may no longer be tightly fastened to the bone, leading to pain for the patient from aberrant mobility. It is done to fix the hip and get it back to where it can function normally.

Revision Total Hip Replacement may be an option if hip pain:

  • Persists, despite pain medication
  • Worsens with walking, even with a cane or walker
  • Interferes with sleep
  • Affects the ability to walk up or down stairs
  • Makes it difficult to rise from a seated position

Who is it for?

Your doctor will evaluate a number of factors, including the amount of residual bone, if your implant is loosened, and the precise position of the fracture, to decide whether a revision is necessary. An implant itself may crack under exceptional circumstances. revision hip replacement is necessary in that scenario.

Anatomy

Technically speaking, a revision hip replacement surgery is often more challenging than the first. In most cases, a longer incision is necessary. It may be more difficult to expose (see) the joint and the implants if there is scar tissue. During the process, it is important to carefully identify any structures that may be buried or concealed by scar tissue, such as nerves and blood arteries.

Dissection involving a larger surgical exposure is necessary. All of the components must be modified or removed, depending on whether the revision is complete or partial. If a part needs to be removed from bone but is securely fastened to the bone, the component must first be freed from the bone. If the component was originally glued into place, it could take a lot of work to get rid of all the cement and expose the new, healthy bone.
