Total hip replacement in Gaucher's disease.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
We performed seven total hip replacements in six patients with the adult form of Gaucher's disease. Excessive perioperative hemorrhage was a common complication, and three patients have required revision of loosened components. Two of these were young patients with a more severe form of the disease. Total hip replacement is feasible and likely to be successful in the older patient with Gaucher's disease and osteonecrosis or failed prior hip surgery.
