Post-traumatic arthritis of the hip is a degenerative condition that commonly affects young patients. In this study, we evaluate long-term implant survival and patient-reported outcomes after primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients aged 35 or younger with post-traumatic arthritis of the hip.
We conducted a retrospective study with follow-up. A chart review was performed to identify young patients with post-traumatic arthritis of the hip treated with primary THA. Follow-up surveys were conducted to determine implant survival and patient-reported outcomes. Implant survival was assessed using Kaplan-Meier survival analysis, and patient outcomes were determined using the hip disability and osteoarthritis outcome score (HOOS).
We studied 42 patient
Young patients with post-traumatic arthritis of the hip have good long-term outcomes after THA. However, revision THA is predictive of worse long-term outcomes.
