Description

Abstract

Background: Total hip replacement (THR) surgery is the most common reconstructive hip procedure and annual procedures rates are expected to rise for patients 65 and older. Recovery options are known to enhance function post THR; however, there is a lack of comprehensive and consistent strategies for optimal function in older adults.

Objectives: The purpose of this integrated literature review is to identify current recovery and rehabilitation program strategies used to reach optimal function for older adults post total hip replacement. To better understand current research related to THR recovery strategies for optimal function in OAs, a literature review is necessary. Findings could promote the development of consistent and concise THR recovery and rehabilitation strategies for older adults (OA) and provide a clearer understanding of effective intervention techniques to be used in clinical practice.

Design: An integrative literature review.

Methods: This integrative literature review will involve reading, comprehending, and critiquing multiple articles. We will then develop a data matrix table to sort our findings for further analysis.

Conclusion: This integrative literature review hopes to identify and introduce the most effective recovery strategies for older adults after total hip replacement surgery and to make these recommendations for future practice.

Keywords: total hip replacement, total hip arthroplasty, older adults, 65+, over 65, post
