Hip arthroplasty is a reliable means in the treatment of hip conditions. By restoring its mobility, stability and indolence. However, this prosthetic surgery exposes to the risk of the occurrence of complications that can affect the functional prognosis. The most common complications are dislocations, fractures, loosening, and infections. These complications may require surgical revision of the total hip prosthesis (THA). We present three cases of patients who required revision THA, and we present the therapeutic recommendations for each of the complications in the literature, to ensure adequate management, and the recovery of a painless, mobile and functional hip.
