AbstractBackground: One of the most common causes of human locomotion impairment is hip joint pain. Total hip arthroplasty is the most significant single advancement in modern orthopedic surgery. By replacing damaged cartilage surfaces with various artificial bearing materials, surgeons have been able to improve function and relieve pain in the vast majority of patients. The current study was carried out to investigate the functional outcome and complications associated with cemented total hip replacement using a modular prosthesis. Moore's approach, which is commonly used in our institution, is used in all of the cases.
Materials and Methods: In this study, 30 patients with 30 diseased hips were treated with cemented total hip replacement using modular prosthesis by Moore's approach in our institution between September 2020 and September 2021, and were followed up for 1-24 months.
Results: Patients were evaluated functionally as well as radiologically. Functional evaluation using the Modified Harris hip score revealed excellent results in 17 patients (60%), 7 patients ( 30%) were the good results, and 3 patients (10%) had in fair condition. There were no negative outcomes. The most recent radiological evaluation of all cases revealed no signs of aseptic dislocation or implant failure.
Conclusion: We achieved results comparable to other authors by using proper patient selection, adequate planning, armamentarium, and meticulous surgical technique. In a nutshell, this procedure performed with the utmost technical precision at our institute yielded very good clinical results. If done with extreme care and precision, functional results are excellent and complications are minimal. Long-term studies are required to investigate late complications and to demonstrate the efficacy of the implants and procedure.
