This study evaluated survivorship and clinical outcomes of patients undergoing conversion of a hip arthrodesis to a total hip arthroplasty (THA) and compared them to 2 patient cohorts: primary THA and first-time revision THA. Patients completed 5 standardized outcome questionnaires. The study cohort was compared to matched groups of primary THA and first-time revision THA patients. Twenty-six patients were identified, 2 deceased and 7 revised, leaving 17 patients available for review. A 10-year survivorship of 74.2% and complication rate of 54% were noted. All outcome scores were lower for the study cohort: clinically significant difference vs revision THA group and statistically significant difference vs primary THA group. Takedown arthrodesis patients experience poor clinical outcomes and high complication rates compared to primary and even revision THA.
