Abstract

Conversion of Girdlestone hips with THR provided patient satisfaction and functional results superior to secondary Girdlestone hips while the incidence of postoperative complications and revisions were similar for both groups. These differences justify attempts at the conversion of Girdlestone situations with THR, if technically possible, in accordance with the patient's wish and as allowed by his/her general health.
