Implant lasts at least 10 years in 85 percent of patients

Hip replacement is often performed in patients with juvenile arthritis when their joints have been severely damaged by the disease. A study at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) finds that the procedure is an excellent option to alleviate pain and improve function in juvenile arthritis patients under age 35 when conservative treatments fail to provide relief.

The study, presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons annual meeting, found that total hip replacement (THR) lasted at least 10 years in 85 percent of patients, and 20 years in 50 percent of patients. When the implant wears out or is no longer viable, juvenile arthritis patients generally have a revision surgery, or second hip replacement.
