Hip Resurfacing Failure Symptoms

Hip resurfacing has a high failure rate of 8- 10 %. Most failures occur within five to ten years. It commonly fails in dysplastic hips, Avascular necrosis and short women. Reasons for hip resurfacing failure are improper technique, wrong patient selection, and inherent complications.

Problems associated with failed hip resurfacing are:

Soft tissue destruction

Bone loss

Implant loosening


Femoral neck fracture

Causes for failure of hip resurfacing

Main causes are:

Socket loosening

Socket malposition

Femoral neck fracture

Femoral component loosening

Pseudo tumors

ALVAL lesions

Though hip resurfacing with the ASR was first to be reported, the Birmningham hip resurfacing (BHR) and other devices also have a moderate failure rate.

Symptoms of failure are pain, limp and deformity.

X rays may show alteration in the position of the components. Hip aspiration may reveal a black coloured fluid. Blood metal ion levels may be elevated.
