Cardno ChemRisk Publishes Meta-Analysis on Gender-Specific Risks of Hip Implant Revisions
Overall, findings suggested that males are at an increased risk of revision following THA when compared to females. Additionally, this study provided evidence that gender-specific risk of revision may be impacted by geographic location (i.e. United States and Europe) and time period of THA operation (i.e. post-2000). The authors discussed potential risk factors for revision among male hip implant patients, including differences in hip anatomy, degree of surgical trauma during surgery, level of physical activity following surgery, as well as differences in primary care provider interactions.
