Systemic Complications Following Total Hip Arthroplasty


Total hip arthroplasty (THA) has stood the test of time in improving the human quality of life. However, there remain associated complications. Although there is a low incidence of complications, the typical complications following THA have been well described in the literature, including infection, dislocation, wear, thromboembolic disorders, and intraoperative fracture. Knowledge of the systemic complications of THA can dramatically affect patient outcomes. (Journal of the Southern Orthopaedic Association 12(2):112–116, 2003)
