TYPES OF IMPLANTS

Types of implants and their indications
There are many types of implants available to suit the patient’s age, disease, bone quality, lifestyle demands etc. The surgeon and the patient should reach a concensus on the type of implant to be used so as to give the best results. Here we are presenting different and advantages in a very simplified way

  • Cemented hip replacement

 In this we use bone cement to fix the implants. Patient can start walking within 48 hrs after surgery. It is very good for elderly patients with osteoporotic bones. Only drawback is that revision surgery is difficult and cumbersome.

  • Non cemented hip replacement

 In this, implants are press-fitted into the bone. Weight bearing has to be delayed for few weeks. It is good for younger patients(less than 60 yrs of age). Revision surgery is simpler & gives equally good results as the primary surgery.

  • Hip resurfacing

In above mentioned types of implants we have to cut a part of patient’s bone to fit in the implant .In resurfacing, we preserve almost all the original bone of the patient. Patient can squat and sit cross legged which is a major requirement of younger patients and most of other patients belonging to Asian countries.

  • Ceramic on Ceramic/ Metal on metal hip replacement

In most of the conventional implants there is metal on one side and plastic on other side. This leads to collection of plastic particles in hip joint causing loosening of implants. To increase the life of the implant now metal on metal and ceramic on ceramic bearing surfaces of joints have been introduced. Only drawback is, they are expensive.
