Cemented, Noncemented, Outcome, THR


Background: To resolve the damage and pain in the joint in the hip, total hip replacement (THR) is used. There are some methods used to give THR, but cemented and noncemented THR are common to improve the result of the cemented THR as patients face some complications after replacement. In this study we compared the outcome of the noncemented and cemented THR. The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of noncemented and cemented THR and find out the favorable outcome.

Methods: This was a randomized, comparative type of observational study and was conducted in the Department of Orthopedics of National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation, Bangladesh during the period from 2019 to 2020 on 60 patients, of which 2 groups were made with 30 patients in each group. The age range was less than 50 to more than 70. In group-A cemented THR was done and in group-B noncemented THR was done. Percentage was calculated to find out the proportion of the findings. Further statistical analysis of the results was done by computer software devised in the statistical packages for social scientist (SPSS-23) and MS excel.

Results: After comparing outcomes, we saw that most of the patients get better result at the 2nd revision conducted in 6th months. There was no significant difference between the results of the two groups.

Conclusions: Though noncemented THR had better result in pain and infection occurrence after treatment, the instability is higher comparing cemented THR. Besides, patients cemented THR also had many complications after treatment.
