Patients who underwent early total hip arthroplasty experienced better 10-year cup and stem survival compared with patients who underwent late total hip arthroplasty, according to study results.

Researchers searched the Medline databases from January 1990 to January 2014 and retrieved 19 articles reporting on the management of posttraumatic arthritis of the hip following acetabular fractures with the use of late total hip arthroplasty (THA), as well as articles where acetabular fractures were treated with early THA. In all, the researchers assessed THA outcomes following acetabular fracture in 654 patients.
