Introduction: Total Hip Replacement is one of the most successful orthopaedic procedures performed now-a-days. A British orthopaedic surgeon named Charnley first introduced with this treatment. A noncemented joint prosthesis, sometimes called a press-fit prosthesis, is specially textured to allow the bone to grow onto it and adhere to it over time.
Aim of the study: The study aims to determine the results and the complications associated with non-cemented total hip replacement (THR).
Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedic Rehabilitation (NITOR), Dhaka, Bangladesh during the period from February 2016 to February 2018. Sample size was 35. Statistical analysis of the results was done by computer software devised in the statistical packages for social scientist (SPSS-25) and MS excel-16.
Results: In total 35 patients in this cross-sectional study from the total of 35 patients we found most of the patients were male 29(82.86%) and female 6(17.14%). Most of the patients found in 31-40 age group 14(40.00%), then 41-50 and that was 11(31.43%) respectively 5(14.29%) found in 21-30, 11(31.43%) in 41-50 and 4(11.43%) in >61. So most of them found excellent on the score of 90-100, 20(57.14%), then 11(31.4%) was 80-89 score as good, 3(8.6%) found in 70-79 score fair and below <70 score found 1(2.9%) as poor.
Conclusion: There is many reasons that may have caused surgeons in the past to move away from the use of cemented implants have been found to be unwarranted and the evidence does not support the increasing using of noncemented implants. In particular, the risk of mortality in cemented THA has not been found to be higher than noncemented THA.
