When performed early, revision of MoM THA was not associated with increased complication rates
May 17, 2017

Recently published results showed no association between revision following metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty and increased complication rates when performed before extensive soft tissue destruction compared with revision following metal-on-polyethylene total hip arthroplasty.

Shoji Nishio , MD, and colleagues collected patient demographics, reason for revision, type of revision procedure, any complication within 90 days after surgery, admission type and discharge disposition from 140 patients who underwent first-time revision of either metal-on-metal or metal-on-polyethylene total hip arthroplasty (THA). Researchers reviewed primary diagnosis, time from primary THA to revision, operative time, blood loss and length of stay.
