Urethral instrumentation and deep sepsis in total hip replacement.

Abstract

One hundred and ninety-five male patients developed urinary retention following Charnley low friction arthroplasty. Seventy required prostatectomy, with a mortality rate of 8.6%. The overall deep sepsis rate of the implant was 6.2%. Males with urinary tract symptoms should be investigated and treated before being accepted for total hip replacement.
