COMPARISION OF CEMENTED VERSUS UNCEMENTED HEMIARTHOROPLASTY OF THE HIP.
The objective of this study was to compare the mean residual pain after cemented versus uncemented hemiarthroplasty of hip. Study Design: Randomized Controlled Trial. Setting: Orthopaedic Department, Allied Hospital, Faisalabad. Period: September 2016 to October 2017. Materials and Methods: Total 150 patients were admitted in orthopedic Department of Allied Hospital Faisalabad according to inclusion & exclusion criteria. After taking informed written consent, all patients were divided into two groups randomly. Cemented
hemiarthroplasty was done in Group A patients and uncemented hemiarthroplasty was done in group B patient. All procedures were done by surgeon who has minimum 5yrs post fellowship experience. Monthly Follow up was done and residual pain was noticed at the end of 6th month. All the data was analyzed by using SPSS version 20.0. Results: In this study, in Group-A the patients between 65-75 years of age were 57.33% (n=43) and between 76-85 of age were 42.67% (n=32). In Group B the patients between 65-75 years of age were 56%
(n=42) and between 76-85 years were 44% (n=33). The mean+sd was calculated and it is 73.49+4.99 years in Group-A patients and 73.73+4.74 years in Group-B patients. In Group A, males were 61.33% (n=46) and female were 38.67% (n=29). In Group B, males were 57.33% (n=43) and female were 42.67% (n=32). When we compared the residual pain after cemented versus uncemented hemiarthroplasty of the hip, it shows 1.69+0.35 in Group-A patients and 2.62+0.30 in Group-B patients. When we calculated p-value it was 0.0001 showing a significant
difference. Conclusion: It is concluded that residual pain in cemented hemiarthroplasty is lower than uncemented hemiarthroplasty.
