Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

The findings of this study are valuable for adopting a clinical risk management approach after total hip arthroplasty in which risk factors for postoperative complications can be managed by providing greater vigilance for signs of potential adverse events and providing longer follow–up after community discharge.
