Surgeon volume and early complications after primary total hip arthroplasty

Within the past 50 years, total hip arthroplasty has developed from a procedure with a low success rate to one of the main achievements in surgery and has even been designated the operation of the century.1 The tipping point came during the 1960s, when Sir John Charnley designed and developed a unique well functioning prosthesis and used acrylic bone cement to fix the components. Early (already good) results with this prosthesis have been further improved by later devices. Clinical outcomes are now excellent, and over 95% of modern hip prostheses survive for at least 10 years. Complications do occur, however, and include instability, aseptic loosening, periprosthetic fracture, infection, and occasionally death. Although rare, complications do not happen completely at random, and various patient, surgical, and prosthetic factors have been associated with higher risk.
