The influence of dislocation on functional outcomes of primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) are unclear. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of nonrecurrent dislocations treated with closed reduction following primary THA on post-operative outcome in the short to medium term. Ninety-six patients were enrolled in this retrospective case-control study. There were 32 patients who had a postoperative dislocation. The control group consisted of 64 matched patients who did not dislocate. All patients had a minimum of 1 year follow-up. The two groups were compared using the SF-12, reduced WOMAC and satisfaction questionnaire. There was no statistical difference between the two groups in terms of subjective functional outcomes using the WOMAC or SF-12. However, there was a trend towards better quality of life scores in the control group and they were more satisfied with their surgery compared to the dislocation group.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
