In 2017, 98.0% of total resurfacing hip replacements were undertaken in males (Table HT56 and Figure HT66). There is a small increase in the proportion of patients aged 55 to 64 years receiving total resurfacing hip replacement in 2017 (Figure HT67
Revision Rates at 17 Years for Male and Female Hip Resurfacing Patients
The use of primary total resurfacing hip replacement has declined for the fourth consecutive year. There was a 22.1% reduction in primary total resurfacing procedures compared to 2009. Analyses on a variety of factors affecting outcome have been presented. These include primary diagnosis, gender, age, head size and type of prosthesis. Patients having a total resurfacing for osteoarthritis are revised less frequently than patients with developmental dysplasia. Females have a significantly higher rate of revision compared to males. Males have an age related rate of revision, which is significantly higher for patients 65 years or older.
As reported last year, the difference in outcome related to gender is largely due to the size of the femoral component. There is an inverse relationship between rate of … Read the rest
