CEBALLOS MESA, ALFREDO; BALMASEDA MANENT, ROBERTO; PUENTE RODRIGUEZ, ROBERTO y PEDROSO CANTO, MARIO. Clinical evaluation of the results of total hip prothesis. Rev Cubana Ortop Traumatol [online]. 1998, vol.12, n.1-2, pp. 72-76. ISSN 1561-3100.
The clinical evaluation of the results of 33 hips operated on with total primary hip prothesis in 28 patients aged 28-81, who had been surgically treated more than 2 years age due to different causes, which had led to previous operations by other techniques, is presented. The scoring system used by the "Hermanos Mayo" Clinic, in 1985, that grants a maximum of 80 points for clinical results was selected for the evaluation. The mean scoring was 67.9. 16 hips obtained a higher scoring (48.5 %). In the final result, 28 hips were between excellent and good (80-60 points), accounting for 84 %, which represents an adequate reincorporation of our patients to social life.
