BACKGROUND: Uncemented Total Hip Replacement(THR) is at present an accepted treatment in patients with severe deformity of the hip caused by advanced ankylosing spondylitis.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: We studied 20 patients, 2 female and 18 male, who had 29 THRs, all through a posterior approach. The patient’s age at index surgery ranged from 20 to 47 years(mean 35.1). No Trochanteric Osteotomy was performed in any patient. A double cut of the femoral neck was performed for hips which were ankylosed in external rotation and flexion. Follow-up ranged from 18 to 46 months (mean 22.2 months).
RESULTS: The mean preoperative Harris Hip Score(HHS) was 34.6 . At last follow-up all hips were considered excellent, with a mean HHS of 90. Radiographs revealed that the acetabular and femoral components were satisfactorily positioned with no radiographic evidence of loosening. No heterotrophic ossification was found.
