Immediate Postoperative Radiographic Assessment of Hip Arthroplasty
Keywords:Radiography, Hemiarthroplasty , Total Hip Arthroplasty, Femoral neck fracture.
Radiograph is the keystone in the assessment of hip arthroplasty, as it is available with no metal
artifact , at a low cost, and facilitating longitudinal comparison. Pelvic radiograph is significant to
assess post-operative hip arthroplasty. So we aim to assess the outcome of the operation through
immediate radiography for hip arthroplasty and to determine the different types of hip arthroplasty.
This prospective study were conducted at surgical specialized hospital and nursing home hospital /
medical city complex / Iraq-Baghdad at radiological departments by seimens x.ray machines , in the
period between ( October 2020 – march 2021) . Fifty patients were included . The results showed
after radiographic evaluation of hip arthroplasty , 90.0% of cases was Equal Leg length. The higher
percentage of vertical center was (90.0 %) for similar compared to lower percentage was(10.0%) non
similar , (96.0%) of horizontal center was similar compared (4.0%) non similar .The higher percentage
of acetabular inclination was (78.0%) for angle 45degree compared to lower percentage was(6.0%) for
angle 50 degree , the higher percentage of acetabular anterversion was (30.0%) for angle 25 degree
compared to lower percentage was(2.0%) for angle 30 degree. The percentage for femoral stem position
was (100.0%) for neutral alignment . (90.0%) not used of cement mantle compared to (10.0%) used
cement mantle , the thickness in range 2-3mm . (94.0%) was no any early complications compared to
(6.0%) was Superficial infection.
