[Clinical evaluation of the hip joint after implantation of cementless Mittelmeier type and Parhofer-Mönch type hip prosthesis].


Total hip replacement is the most common procedure in the treatment of severe degenerative changes in the hip joint. The authors present clinical evaluation of 129 patients (151 hips) who underwent total hip replacement using either the Mittelmeier type or the Parhofer-Mönch type hip prothesis. The age of the patients ranged at the time of the operation between 17 and 74 years (average 44.9). The follow-up ranged from 24 to 143 months (average 61.2 months). The P-M prothesis was implanted in 53 hips, the P-M "Plasmapore" prothesis in 42 patients, Mittelmeier Autophor 900 prothesis in 49 patients and the Mittelmeier Autophor 900S prothesis in 7 patients. Clinical evaluation was performed according to the d'Aubigne-Postel method with the Charnley modification. The results were graded as very good in 17 cases, good in 64 cases, satisfactory in 53 cases and poor in 17 cases. Very good and good results were mainly observed after implantation of the P-M type prothesis and P-M "Plasmapore" type prothesis. Worse results were observed in patients, who at the time of the operation were aged 45 years or less and who had congenital hip dysplasia. P-M type prothesis gives better clinical results in the treatment of degenerative changes of the hip joint.
