This book provides a comprehensive overview on implantation techniques and complications of total hip prostheses. Planning of the operation is outlined in a detailed manner. All typical local complications such as haematomas, infections, luxations, fractures, neurologic complications, and pain are defined and analysed with reference to the author's own experience and the relevant international literature. The book is completed by two chapters on overall survival of various types of prostheses and patients' informed consent. It is aimed at orthopedic surgeons dealing with total hip prostheses regularly or even only occasionally. Numerous illustrated case reports provide practical information and the detailed index allows for easy and fast consultation.
