Abstract

From February 1991 to July 1993, 26 hydroxyapatite (HA) coated total hips were implanted in 26 patients with infected hip prostheses. Seven were done as one-stage exchange arthroplasties and the other 19 were delayed reimplantations. Successful reimplantation was defined as a functioning hip without recurrence of infection at least 2 years after reimplantation. During a follow-up period of 25 to 54 months, 24 of the reimplantations were successful. Our success rate using the HA-coated prosthesis is similar to previous reports that used antibiotic impregnated bone cement. The HA method avoids the complications encountered with bone cement.
