DEGENERATED HIP

Dislocation of the hip may be a common injury to the spheroid joint. Dislocation happens once the orbicular head of the femoris comes out of the concave cotyloid cavity set within the pelvis. This may happen to a variable degree. An injured hip, far more common in females than in males, may be a condition that may either be innate or non-inheritable

ARTHRITIS OF THE HIP

Arthritis is one in all the foremost common causes of pain within the hip. An inflammatory disease could be a progressive disorder, which suggests that it generally starts step by step and gets worse with time. The term inflammatory disease virtually means that “inflammation of the joint.” There square measure different kinds of inflammatory disease which will have an effect on the hip. The sort of inflammatory disease you have got might have an effect on your treatment choices.

TYPES OF ARTHRITIS

There are five main types of arthritis that can affect the hip joint. They are:

  1. Osteoarthritis
  2. Rheumatoid arthritis
  3. Ankylosing spondylitis
  4. Systemic lupus erythematosus
  5. Psoriatic arthritis

There is no cure for any type of arthritis, but there are ways to treat the pain and other associated symptoms.

SYMPTONS

  1. Pain in the hip joint that may include pain in the groin, outer thigh, or buttocks
  2. Pain that is typically worse in the morning and lessens with activity
  3. Difficulty walking or walking with a limp
  4. Pain that worsens with vigorous or extended activity
  5. Stiffness in the hip or limited range of motion

TREATMENT OF HIP ARTHRITIS

Treatment should begin with the most basic steps and progress to the more invasive, possibly including surgery. Not all treatments are appropriate for every patient, and you should have a discussion with your doctor to determine which treatments are appropriate for your particular situation. Following are the range of options.

TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT

Total hip replacement surgery is a procedure where the surgeon will remove the painful and diseased hip joint, and replace it with an artificial joint (prosthesis) made up of metal and plastic. A surgery is suggested only when all the other treatments such as painkillers, weight loss and exercises fail to provide relief from the pain. The patient is able to perform daily activities such as walking and climbing stairs with ease.

Total hip replacement surgery can be either performed by using a standard approach or by using the minimally-invasive technique. They can be differentiated on the basis of the size of the incision made during both the procedures.

Usually, the surgeon suggests general anaesthesia during the total hip replacement surgery to put the patient in a temporary deep sleep and does not feel pain. A spinal anaesthesia may also be given as an alternative, in order to help prevent pain.


Total Hip Replacement Surgery

Procedure

  1. Hip Replacement surgery is performed when the patient is asleep under general anaesthesia.
  2. The anaesthesiologist monitors the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and blood oxygen level of the patient throughout the surgery.
  3. An antiseptic solution is then used to clean the skin around the surgical site.
  4. The surgeon will then make an incision in front of your hip joint.
  5. Now, the surgeon will remove the damaged part of your hip joint (which is the damaged upper part of the femur or thigh bone, damaged cartilage and damaged part of the bone from your pelvis).
  6. The surgeon then replaces the damaged part with an artificial implant known as prosthetics. It is made up of 3 metallic components: the stem, a ball and a cup. The stem of the hip prosthetics is placed in the femur (or thighbone) whereas the ball (or head joint) is fitted into the stem and the cup, which has a plastic liner, is inserted into the socket of the hip joint. Now, the prosthetics is attached to the bone with the surgical cement
  7. A drain could be placed in the incision site, to remove the fluid.
  8. The surgeon will now close the incision with either stitches or surgical staples and then apply the sterile bandage or dressing afterwards.
