Harris Hip Score, Total Hip Arthroplasty, Osteoarthritis Hip, Osteonecrosis Hip



To determine the efficacy of cemented primary total hip replacement in patients with end-stage hip disease.


The study was conducted at Khyber Teaching Hospital Peshawar, Pakistan, from March 2022 to January 2024. The study involved 50 males and 23 females and aged 40-80 years, who underwent cemented total hip arthroplasty for end-stage hip diseases. The participants underwent a thorough history, physical examination, and Harris hip score to evaluate their functional ability. All arthroplasties were performed through a modified Hardinge lateral approach using a cemented total hip prosthesis under spinal anesthesia. The patients were mobilized with crutches on the first postoperative day and received intravenous antibiotics for 3 days. The Harris hip score was monitored at 3 months postoperatively and analyzed using SPSS-23 and paired T-test keeping a p-value of ≤ 0.05 as significant.


Most hip involvement was right, with 62% being right hip involvement. Hip pain was the main complaint. The Harris Hip Score was 10-32, with a mean value of 16.50±4.83 preoperatively while postoperatively, in the 3rd month, it was 86.34±9.84 with a p-value of <0.00001 which is significant. The Harris hip score was good to excellent at 82%, fair at 12%, and poor in 5% of cases in 3rd month postoperatively. Complications included skin surgical site infections and dislocations.


Cemented total hip arthroplasty is a safe and successful treatment for end-stage hip joint diseases, providing patients with the possibility of regaining mobility, reducing discomfort, and improving quality of life with minimum risk of complications.
