The Round Table presented here continues the dialogue on treating painful hip conditions in young adult patients, which began in the December issue of Orthopedics Today. It addresses the decision-making process, implant selection, bearing material choices and navigation use in total hip arthroplasty through timely questions and responses from a diverse cross-section of experienced reconstructive hip surgeons. Their responses are both dogmatic and questioning, but reflect the reality of a patient population that is expanding and whose longevity as well as the youthful onset of hip pathologies challenge arthroplasty solutions.
Language: English French. It is well accepted that youth and high activity levels are among the factors that increase the risk of mechanical failure of total hip prostheses. However, there are few reports of long-term results in very young patients.
A personal account of having a hip replacement at a young age. Covering how to cope emotionally, research, key questions, equipment and recovery. I was 28 years old when I was told by an orthopaedic surgeon that I needed a total left hip replacement, due to having Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis JIA from the age of one. I was experiencing chronic pain in my left hip, reduced mobility and was using a walking aid for further support.

Hip replacement surgery has long been used to treat hip arthritis in elderly patients. However, concerns arise when a patient in his 40s, 50s, or younger, has severe hip arthritis that is not relieved with non-operative treatments. Once reserved for elderly patients, hip replacement surgery is becoming more common in the younger, active population.
Musculoskeletal and Rheumatology Blog. Chronic hip pain often starts as a vague discomfort, more annoying than it is painful. Because of that, it is sometimes simply ignored.
Dysplasia of the hip increases the risk of secondary degenerative change and subsequent total hip replacement. Here we report on age at diagnosis of dysplasia, previous treatment, and quality of life for patients born after and registered with a total hip replacement due to dysplasia in the Norwegian Arthroplasty Register. We also used the medical records to validate the diagnosis reported by the orthopedic surgeon to the register.
Although chronic hip pain is often associated with aging, the appearance of this symptom in adolescents and young adults may be a sign of hip dysplasiaa condition in which one or more areas of the hip joint have not developed normally. Articular cartilage, a smooth protective tissue, lines the bones and limits friction between the bone surfaces during movement. In individuals with hip dysplasia, the acetabulum does not develop fully, making it too shallow to adequately contain and support the femoral head.
