Abstract

A total of 5 hip arthroplasties implanted between 1997 and 2000 in 5 patients affected with coxarthrosis secondary to Paget's disease were reviewed. The quality of the pagetic bone (sclerotic and very vascularized) resulted in a slightly longer amount of time required for surgery because of the difficulty preparing prosthetic placement and intra- and postoperative blood loss exceeding the norm. Complications were not observed. Clinical results were good in 100% of cases. Radiographically, 2 stems were assembled in varus.
