Risks & Precautions

MicroPort Hip Systems is indicated to relieve hip pain and improve function in patients suffering from osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis (bone death) and dysplasia. It can also be used to treat previously failed hip replacements and fusion. However, hip replacement using the MicroPort hip system is contraindicated in case of:

  • Infection of the body or blood
  • Immature bones that are not fully developed
  • Weak or unhealthy bones due to severe bone loss
  • Blood vessel, muscle or nervous diseases that may interfere with the stability of the artificial hip joint
  • Suppressed immune system
  • Severely overweight

As with all invasive procedures, MicroPost Hip System may also be associated with certain risks and complications such as deep wound infection, pain, bone fracture, fracture or accelerated wear of the components, damage to blood vessels or nerves, blockage of blood vessels, blood clots, sudden drop in blood pressure during the procedure, delayed wound healing and leg deformity. Risks are based on your age, weight and medical history. Your doctor will discuss the pros and cons of MiscoPort hip replacement surgery and decide if it is right for you.
