Heterotopic Ossification

  • Douglas E. Padgett

Abstract

Prior to the advent of total hip arthroplasty, degenerative disease of the hip was a progressive, disabling condition that led to a life of pain, stiffness, and loss of function. This crippling condition often resulted in patients living a life confined or at least dependent upon the support of others for the performance of activities of daily living. The outlook for many of these patients was, Indeed, bleak. The development of the modern total hip arthroplasty has surely been a godsend to many. In the words of Dr. Mark Coventry, “No orthopedic procedure of this century has captured the imagination of both the medical profession and the lay public as has total arthroplasty of the hip”.1
