FAQ

Common Reasons Why Hip Implants Fail
If you’ve undergone total hip replacement surgery, or are considering the procedure, you understand what a life-altering surgery it is. To have the intensive surgery and then go through physical therapy for months afterward, only to discover that you’ll need a revision surgery can be a devastating blow to any patient. While most hip replacement surgeries are successful, some patients may have to have a second surgery, called a revision, because of an implant failure.

Implants can fail for the following reasons:

Loosening
Sometimes a patient needs a revision surgery because the previous artificial joint has loosened. While all artificial joints experience wear and tear, just as a natural hip joint does, sometimes the friction of the artificial ball and socket can wear down, creating small particles of metal, plastic or ceramic, depending on what the implant is made of. These particles accumulate around the artificial joint and can loosen the implant’s bond to the bone because the body is attempting to rid itself of the particles. When the artificial joint becomes loose, the patient can be in pain or the joint can cause deformity or instability. As the body is trying to rid itself of the particles, it also can attack the healthy bone. This can weaken or fracture the bone, which can make it less likely that revision surgery will be a successful one. If this is the case, then revision surgery will take care of these bone deficiencies.

Infection
Infection can be a serious complication following surgery, leading to implant failure. Bacteria can attach itself to the artificial joint and the surrounding tissue, which has been compromised and is healing following surgery, leaving the tissue vulnerable to infection. Even if the implant hasn’t been loosened, the infection can cause enough pain, swelling and drainage that a revision surgery may be necessary to take care of the problem. Infections can become so severe that in some cases it can endanger a patient’s life.

Dislocation
Dislocation occurs when the artificial joint pops out of place. It can be a common complication in hip replacement surgeries. On average, about one in every 50 patients experiences dislocation in their artificial hip joint.

Activity-related factors
Younger, active patients tend to have a higher rate of needed revision surgery. So do obese patients because of added wear and tear and loosening of the hip joint.  Generally, most hip replacement patients report a positive outcome from the surgery, which has been proven to decrease the chronic pain and immobility associated with a diseased or arthritic hip joint.
