Abstract

A 2 yr followup in a prospective study of 200 Charnley Muller total hip arthroplasties revealed good or excellent results in 94% % of the patients. The most impressive gains were achieved in relief of pain, enhanced functional capacity, and improved hip motion. Overenthusiasm for total hip reconstruction can easily occur. This procedure should be reserved for the elderly, severely disabled patient and should be performed only by qualified surgeons with strict attention to the preoperative management, the operating room environment and postoperative care.
