FAQ

How do Hip Implants Become Loose?
A hip implant becomes loose when it loses its ability to stay in a fixed position attached to the bone. This causes the implant to fail. During hip replacement surgery, a hip implant is fitted tightly in place within the hip joint, either cemented into position or press-fitted into the femur so the implant won’t move. Over time, an implant can become loosened, causing it to move in tiny amounts. This is not only painful, but can cause a patient to lose range of motion.

While most hip implants last about 20 to 25 years, some do last longer. Others can fail sooner than that, sometimes even shortly after hip replacement surgery. A loosening of the hip implant often requires a second hip replacement surgery called revision surgery, which is considered a more complex operation. Revision surgeries often don’t have the same success rates as a first-time hip replacement surgery. Patients often tend to recover less mobility of the artificial joint as they do during a first hip replacement.

Hip implants become loose and fail for a variety of reasons. When the surgery was relatively new, those early implants would fail because they would break or the plastic would shatter. However, technological and design advancements in hip implants have made them stronger and more durable. Hip implants used now last longer and often do well once they are implanted within the joint. Infections also can cause an implant to loosen and fail, although advancements in treatments have decreased the chances of suffering from infections related to a hip implant.

Osteolysis is a common condition associated with joint replacement, including hip replacement. It is a body’s autoimmune response to the implant in which the body attempts to clean up the wear particles on the bone by reabsorbing them, usually microscopic portions of the implant made of metal or plastic. In the process, it also reabsorbs bone , causing a weakening and breaks in the bone surrounding the implant. It also contributes to a loosening of the implant. Osteolysis has occurred as early as one month after a hip replacement surgery, and often requires a revision. Because of the nature of osteolysis, which weakens the existing bone, it can make a revision surgery a challenge. The condition also occurs following other joint replacement procedures, including knee and shoulder replacements. If you feel as though your artificial joint may be slipping, it’s important to see your doctor.
