Abstract

The search for the exact cause of total hip prosthesis luxation is extremely important. A classification is only possible when the exact cause is known and together with patient and implant-specific details the therapeutic approach can be ascertained. In revision operations the intraoperative functional diagnostics must be exactly documented. The reasons for delayed luxations could be prosthesis infections, abrasion and loosening.
