What effect do concomitant diseases have on the outcome of prosthetic hip surgery?

One year after their hip operation, most patients are satisfied with the result, with many even declaring that they are very satisfied. Patients with concomitant diseases can still expect a similar improvement in terms of hip function. However, this group of patients has a somewhat increased risk of complications. This was the conclusion reached by our research team, which investigated the connection between comorbidities, the risk of complications and the patient’s perceptions of osteoarthritis-related hip surgery.

When tissue ossifies around the hip prosthesis

Ossifications of muscles, tendons or connective tissue sometimes occur around a newly implanted hip prosthesis. The reasons for these changes are generally unclear. Our research team has investigated the influence of these ossifications on patients' perception and satisfaction.

Do hip disorders have a different impact on the muscular system in men and women?

Joint diseases often affect the surrounding muscles and hip disorders such as osteoarthritis of the hip and femoroacetabular impingement syndrome are no exception. Yet is there difference in the way these diseases impact on the muscular systems of men and women? This is the question that the research team from our Human Performance Lab and Hip Surgery department have been investigating. The team has published two studies on the subject.
