Title:
Hip replacement in the athlete
Authors:
Doyle, F.; Wilson, Matthew J.
Abstract:
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) was originally designed to alleviate pain and dysfunction in the elderly who live a relatively sedentary life. In more recent years, younger patients with higher life expectancy as well as a greater functional expectancy are presenting for THA. A return to athletic activity has now become a relative indicator for THA. When contemplating THA in the athlete, the surgeon must consider what effect the THA will have on the patients’ ability to perform their chosen sport and more importantly what effect their activities will have on the short- and long-term outcome of the THA. There is a paucity of evidence on the outcomes of THA in the athlete but most studies would suggest that low-impact activities can safely be resumed following surgery.
