In a prospective study of total hip replacements in Sweden, the epidemiology of all the reoperations has been documented since 1979.
From this nationwide register, the results of initial revision arthroplasty for aseptic loosening were evaluated in a well-described patient population, aged 55 to 70 years at the time of revision.
Totally, 202 patients (204 hips) were available for clinical and radiographic analysis.
The average follow-up time was 7 years.
A rerevision or radiographically loose components occuned in 38 percent of the hips.
The survival rate, with rerevision as the end point, was 75 percent at 8 years.
