Explain the components of a total hip arthroplasty implant.

Total hip arthroplasty replaces both the acetabulum and the femoral head with a prosthetic implant consisting of three parts: the acetabular cup, the femoral component, and the articular interface.

What is viscosupplementation in the context of hip rehabilitation?

Viscosupplementation involves the injection of artificial lubricants into the hip joint and is used as an alternative for hip replacement.

What is hemiarthroplasty and for which condition is it most commonly performed?

Hemiarthroplasty only replaces the femoral head and is most commonly performed on the hip after a subcapital fracture of the neck of the femur.

Why is hip resurfacing recommended only for elderly patients?

Hip resurfacing is recommended only for elderly patients due to their lower life expectancy and activity level as the prosthesis tends to loosen or erode the acetabulum with the passage of time.

Describe the procedure of hip resurfacing.

Hip resurfacing is done by placing a hollow mushroom-shaped cobalt-chrome metal cap over the head of the femur, and a metal cup is placed in the acetabulum. It replaces the articulating surfaces of the patient's hip joint.
