Abstract Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most common surgical procedures performed by orthopedic surgeons. Frequent indications for THA include osteoarthrosis of the hip joint that can be primary origin or secondary to dysplasia or traumatic origin, as well as fractures of the femoral neck in active patients. Other common indications include rheumatoid arthritis and osteonecrosis of the femoral head. It is a surgical intervention giving very good results giving patients pain relief and mobility with a success rate in more than 90% of cases. The point of this article is to inform the medical community on the actual situation of hip prosthetics in fields including epidemiology, clinical results, indications, contraindications, different types of prosthetic materials as well as surgical approaches.
