The increase in the incidence of osteoarthritis of the hip (coxarthrosis) in young patients with high functionality requirements and the development of new materials in the last twenty years have resulted in an increase in the number of surgeries involving hip resurfacing procedures. There has also been an increase in associated periprosthetic fractures, which currently occur in 1%-2% of cases. According to the medical literature, fractures of this type can be treated conservatively, using reduction and synthesis or through prosthetic revision.

Abstract

The increase in the incidence of osteoarthritis of the hip (coxarthrosis) in young patients with high functionality requirements and the development of new materials in the last twenty years have resulted in an increase in the number of surgeries involving hip resurfacing procedures. There has also been an increase in associated periprosthetic fractures, which currently occur in 1%-2% of cases. According to the medical literature, fractures of this type can be treated conservatively, using reduction and synthesis or through prosthetic revision.
