Total hip arthroplasty after hip fracture

Outcomes for patients with osteoporotic hip fracture are poor and have been for decades.1 Patients are still left with persistently high rates of morbidity, mortality, decline in function, and loss of independence.2 3 Attempts to improve outcomes have led to evolving approaches to treatment. In older adults, internal fixation for displaced intracapsular hip fractures has largely been supplanted by hemiarthroplasty (or “partial” hip replacement), which is associated with lower rates of revision surgery and better overall outcomes.4 More recently, in this population there has been a push to increase the use of total hip arthroplasty (THA)—an intervention used more commonly for arthritis of the hip—because of the potential for a better return to functional mobility and, therefore, independence.5
