Abstract

Arthroscintography is a simple and effective means of detecting femoral component loosening. Fourteen patients with painful total hip arthroplasties were evaluated using arthroscintography for the detection of femoral component loosening. Using this method, a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 75% were achieved. It is therefore recommended that arthroscintography become a routine part of the evaluation of painful total joint arthoplasties of the hip.
