Title: An Unusual Case of Bilateral Ochronotic Arthropathy of the Hip Successfully Managed by a Staged Bilateral Total Hip Replacement- An Insight with a Surgical Note.
Issue Date: Jul-2018
Citation: J Orthop Case Rep.;(8)4:11-14
Abstract: Ochronosis is an inherited metabolic disease that causes a brownish-black pigmentation of the connective tissue. There is currently no specific treatment for ochronosis. The goal of treatment is to control the progress of disease with a multidisciplinary approach and symptomatic relief. Arthroplasty in ochronotic arthropathy patients has shown good to excellent results comparable to arthroplasty performed in patients with degenerative osteoarthritis.
