American academy of orthopaedic surgeons. Annual meeting. Washington DC (USA), 1992/02/24.
The change in the hospital cost of total hip arthroplasty over a ten-year period at the Lahey Clinic was evaluated by comparison of the hospital bills for forty-four hip replacements that had been performed in 1981 with the bills for 104 such operations that had been done in 1990.
Each hospital charge was converted to cost with use of government-mandated hospital-specific cost-to-charge ratios.
The average actual hospital cost for total hip arthroplasty increased 46.5 per cent, from $8428 in 1981 to $12,348 in 1990.
However, in inflation-adjusted dollars, the cost increased only 1.9 per cent.
