Deep infection in total hip replacement poses a significant challenge to the clinician, in terms of successful treatment and cost containment. The authors describe a protocol that has been successfully utilized in four patients. Cost analysis was performed to evaluate the financial efficacy and viability of treating these patients in a community hospital setting.

Ninteen patients received single-dose exposure to 600 rad delivered within 48 hours of total hip arthroplasty (THA) with shielding of the prosthesis region for the prevention of heterotopic ossification. The patients were considered at high risk for developing heterotopic ossification (HO) because of hypertropic osteoarthritis, post-traumatic osteoarthritis or the presence of previously-formed ectopic bone. The average follow-up period was 42 months (range, 37 months - 48 months). At a follow-up study, all hips except one were classified as Brooker class 0. The single exception was classified as class I. All patients were asymptomatic at the last follow-up study and no component demonstrated subsidence or radiolucent line indicative of loosening. The authors concluded that 600 rad, single-fraction radiation therapy is cost effective, convenient and safe for the prevention of heterotopic ossification after total hip arthroplasty.

Knee and Hip Replacement Costs Vary Greatly ..

The key effectiveness inputs in the model were the revision and re-revision rates for total hip replacement which were estimated using National Joint Registry for England and Wales (2003-2009) and hospital episode statistics (1997-2009) data. Where possible patient records from both sources were linked and these linked data were used to derive revision rates within the first five years by prosthesis type. Revision rates after five years and re-revision rates were based on data from hospital episode statistics only.
