It is estimated that 50% of total hip replacements become loose after 15 years, and most of them require either revision surgery or resection orthoplasty. Neither, newer operative techniques, change in design, use of novel materials, nor surface modifications have helped to circumvent the problem. It is in this context, that attention has been focussed on the role of tissue surrounding… CONTINUE READING
