How long do revised and multiply-revised hip replacements last?

Hip replacements are common and effective operations; but some patients that undergo this intervention are at risk of the replacements failing, requiring costly and often complex revision surgery with often poorer outcomes than primary surgery. Using NJR data, researchers from the University of Bristol have aimed to provide detailed information on the longevity of hip revision surgery and the results have just been published in The Lancet.


Data was included on all first revisions, with an identifiable primary procedure, with osteoarthritis as the sole indication for the original primary procedure. Analyses were stratified by age and gender, and the influence of time from first to second revision on the risk of further revision was explored.
