  5. 5. Osteoarthritis of the Hip and Uncemented Total Hip Arthroplasty Effects of Immediate Weight Bearing on Implant Stability, Bone Mineral Density, and Body Composition

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Olof Wolf; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Osteoarthritis of the hip; uncemented; total hip arthroplasty; stability; RSA; BMD; DXA; body composition; weight bearing; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Orthopaedics; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Ortopedi; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Abstract : The initial recommendation for the postoperative regime after uncemented total hip arthroplasty (THA) was 6-12 weeks of partial weight bearing (PWB) to obtain a stable implant position during bone ingrowth. In recent years patients with uncemented THA have increasingly practiced full weight bearing (FWB) after surgery, which has largely been based on clinical experience rather than on scientific evidence.
