Abstract

The occurrence of heterotopic ossification after total hip arthroplasty may be prevented by radiation or medical therapy. The authors report the results obtained in 96 cases treated by cobalt therapy: the occurrence of high grade ossification (Brooker III and IV) is equal to 1% in cases treated, as compared to 9% in cases not treated. Male patients of advanced age and who are characterized by primary arthrosis are more at risk for ossification.
