Revision Joint Replacement
As the name suggests, we revise the previously operated joint replacement surgery which is failed because of some reason.
Common indications for revision joint replacement surgery.
- Aseptic loosening
- Peri-prosthetic fracture
- Degradation plastic insert
Revision joint prostheses are different than those used in primary surgery. They are stronger, larger, bulky, contain rods, longer stems, and multiple screws options.
In case of infection, we generally do two-stage revision joint replacement surgery. In 1st stage, we remove all the implants, do through debridement, and put an antibiotic spacer in the local area. in the 2nd stage, we do implant the new joints.
In other conditions, we do single-stage revision joint replacement surgery.
