Abstract

In this retrospective study we have analysed 10-year period results of all type periprosthetic hip joint infection treatments at our Department. Data for 73 patients were analysed and functional status for 41 patients evaluated. A smaller proportion of patients (45%) with resection arthroplasty as the definitive solution were satisfied. These were mostly females with numerous comorbidities and lower functional demands. Much better results were achieved in 2-stage revision arthroplasty group. In conclusion whenever possible revision arthroplasty should be done because probability of re-infection is much lower than was previously believed, and the functional status of patients and their general life satisfaction is much higher.

Abstract in Croatian

ZADOVOLJSTVO BOLESNIKA NAKON REARTROPLASTIKE TE RESEKCIJSKE ARTROPLASTIKE U LIJEČENJU PERIPROTETIČKE INFEKCIJE KUKA ----- U ovoj retrospektivnoj studiji su analizirani rezultati liječenja periprotetičke infekcije kuka u vremenskom periodu od deset godina. Analizirani su podaci iz medicinske literature 73 bolesnika, a u 41 bolesnika učinjena je i analiza funkcionalnog statusa. Manji broj bolesnika s resekcijskom artroplastikom kao definitivnim rješenjem je zadovoljan rezultatima liječenja. To su uglavnom žene starije životne dobi s brojnim komorbiditetima i nižim funkcionalnim zahtjevima. Mnogo bolji rezultati su dobiveni u skupini bolesnika kojima je naknadno učinjena revizijska artroplastika kuka. Temeljem dobivenih rezultata zaključujemo kako bi kada god je to moguće trebalo učiniti revizijsku artroplastiku kuka, jer je vjerojatnost reinfekcije značajno manja nego što se ranije mislilo, a funkcionalni status bolesnika i njihovo opće zadovoljstvo životom puno veće.
