Prevention of heterotopic ossification in hip arthroplasties by means of an early single-dose radiotherapy (6 Gy)


Radiotherapy has proven to be efficient in the prevention of heterotopic bone formation. Its importance is increasing in the treatment of uncemented implants in prosthetic hip surgery, where a localized irradiation field is applied to cover the bone-implant interface.
