The purpose of this study was to compare the risk of complication and revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) in Medicare THA patients with different bearings. Using the 100% Medicare database (2005-2009), the adjusted risk of complication and revision THA was calculated for 148,827 THA patients (93,929 metal-on-polyethylene, 49,646 metal-on-metal, 5252 ceramic-on ceramic). Adjusted risk of deep vein thrombosis, dislocation, periprosthetic joint infection (PJI), mechanical loosening… CONTINUE READING
