          Abstract

          Postoperative hip dislocations have been reported in 0.5 to 10.6 % of patients after primary posterolateral total hip arthroplasty (THA). Hip precautions are currently recommended for 6 weeks postoperatively to reduce early dislocation and facilitate healing of the posterior soft tissue repair.
