Total hip arthroplasty (THA) has become a common procedure in orthopedics and traumatology practice, thus the need for revision surgery has been increasing day by day. Revision rate for THA has increased more than 20% in the last 15 years, and this rate is expected to double in the next 10 years. Although development of the implant technology and surface designs enhance the survival of the prosthesis, the need for revision surgeries is expected to increase as hip arthroplasties are being performed in younger patients. THA may require revision due to different indications, understanding the reason of revision is crucial to decide the steps for the treatment. In addition, the appropriateness of the indications for revision surgeries has began to be investigated in more detail due to the difficulties of reimbursement of the healthcare companies.
