Revision surgery

    Revision surgery has a special significance these days. There are clear rules which ensure that, in the event of a revision surgery, reaction is different in case of a so-called aseptic loosening of the prosthesis (normal wear and tear of the implant) than it would be in case of a septic loosening of the prosthesis. Planning of such procedures always takes place individually and is based on the extensive results of the European registry for endoprosthetics and currently available scientific literature.
