Abstract

The authors present 15 cases of hyp arthroplasty implanted in patients affected with necrosis of the femoral head, which were undergoing periodic hemodialitic treatment, or with renal transplants. Ceramic-ceramic prostheses were prevalently used and only in 1 case was a metal-polyethylene prosthesis used. Because of precarious mineralization a cemented prosthesis was implanted in dialyzed patients; in renal transplants, instead, cemented or cementless prosthesis were used depending on the state of the bone. There was a high percentage of excellent results after 2-8 years (87%), and this confirms the validity of surgical indications for the use of arthroplasty in hips affected with epiphyseal necrosis in order to favor functional recovery: considering the young age od the patients, this helps them to go back to being a part of society, and to recover psychologically.
