Fast-track total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a well-established concept including optimized logistics and evidence-based treatment, focusing on minimizing surgical stress and improved post-operative recovery. The aim of this protocol is to compare the standard care and fast track total hip arthroplasties in terms of functional and subjective outcomes, hospital staying, number of transfusions and analgesic consumption.


The aim of this protocol is to compare standard care and fast track total hip arthroplasties. The fast track care consists of:

  • preoperative educational lesson in which orthopedic surgeon, anesthesiologist and physiotherapist illustrate the operative and post operative path to the patients
  • antalgic protocol administered only orally
  • early rehabilitation care. The day of the surgical operation, the physiotherapist helps the patient reach the upright position. The standard care consists of usual antalgic and physiotherapy post-operative care:
  • Antalgic protocol consist in intravenous drugs
  • the first physiotherapy session is the day after surgery
