Hip replacement reduces heart failure, depression and diabetes risk
Date:3/21/2013

to-7 years following surgery.

  • THR patients had a reduced risk of diabetes at one and three years.

  • THR patients had a reduced rate of depression starting at three years post THR surgery.

    The THR patients in the study did have an increased risk of ischemic heart disease and atherosclerosis at one year, and an increased risk of "cardiovascular disease unspecified" over all time points.

    The seven-year cumulative average Medicare payment for all medical care was $82,788 for non-THR patients and $89,154 for THR patients, for a difference of $6,366. The actual average per-patient THR cost is expected to be much less than $6,366 when differences in costs incurred due to prescription pain medications are taken into account.

    "Joint (replacement) has been proposed as possibly cost-saving in the management of disability related to arthritis," said Lovald. "This study provides supporting data to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of THR."
