Abstract


Objectives: This study the done to assess early clinical & functional outcome of uncemented total hip arthroplasty and early complications, if any with the procedure.

Material and Methods: Study included 30 patients (34 hips) of avascular necrosis of femoral head that were operated with uncemented total hip arthroplasty within the age group 18 to 45 year. Patients were followed up prospectively at the time of discharge, at 4 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year and results were assessed using Harris Hip score and radiological and clinical parameters.

Conclusion: Total hip arthroplasty remains the treatment standard for advanced stages of avascular necrosis of femoral head despite of relative success of several joint preserving procedures in selected patients.
