Bilateral hip arthrosis is commonly seen and two-staged bilateral Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) is a preferred choice of treatment due to the fear of complications associated with one-stage bilateral procedures. However, many studies now indicate that the treatment option should be patient specific. We report two cases of one-stage bilateral anterior THA. First, a 54-year-old male operated over a year ago and second a 59-year-old female operated 6 weeks ago. Both presented with a long history of bilateral grade IV hip arthritis causing them severe pain, compromised gait and disturbed sleep. Post-surgery, they were mobilized within few hours after surgery as part of our enhanced recovery programme. There was a drastic increase in their Harris Hip Scores from 34.5 in case 1 and 19.2 in case 2 to 100 for both hips in both patients. They reported excellent recovery, regained normal gait pattern, returned quickly to their routine lifestyle and felt it was an economical option. We conclude that one-stage bilateral bikini anterior THA is a preferred surgical option for patients with bilateral hip arthritis that are medically fit.
Key words: Bikini anterior hip replacement / Bilateral anterior hip replacement / One stage bilateral hip replacement / Enhanced recovery
