In the older patients who has a lower bone endurance, a filling named bone cement and the prosthesis are placed on the bone. This sort of prosthesis are called as cement containing hip prosthesis. For younger patients who have a stronger bone endurance, the prosthesis covered by a spongy substance is placed in the bone, confidently.
Ratio of success in the hip prostheis is more than 95%. In todays science, prosthesis life is more than 25 years thanks to the development of the medicine and inspiring implant designs. If there is a corrosion or loosening on the implant, the doors get open for the new hip surgery. The hip prosthesis surgery is an important and must be operated under a proper conditions. Moreover, it has potential risks. Along with these risks, problems in the hip may give a way to another problems. Eventually, this is a quite successful surgery if it is realized under skilled hands.
