This study compared the functional outcomes of total hip (THA) in one and shockwave (ESWT) in the other in 17 patients with bilateral hip necrosis. In THA side, only one type of prosthesis was used and all components were press fixed. In ESWT side, each hip received 6,000 impulses of shockwave at 28 kv. The evaluations included pain score and Harris hip score, radiographs and MR images. The magnitudes of improvement in pain and function favored the ESWT side. Thirteen patients rated ESWT better… CONTINUE READING
