Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The most common cause of hip replacement surgery is osteoarthritis, which is the main reason for limiting the efficiency of increasingly younger. From the point of view of the medical and social treatment arthroplasty improves the quality of life of patients, giving the patient a chance to overcome the pain and improve the quality of gait and thus a better self-service in their everyday lives, performing social roles and sexual activity. The aim of this study is to assess the impact of hip arthroplasty for sexual activity.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study involved 60 people after hip arthroplasty in Zamosc. The research material was obtained using a questionnaire containing 24 questions, including 16 closed and 8 open-ended questions developed for this study. Statistical analysis was performed using chi-square test in Excel spreadsheet program.

RESULTS: Statistical analysis of the study showed statistically significantly more frequent occurrence of the negative impact of hip dysfunction sex life before surgery to insert a hip endoprosthesis in people aged below 40 years of age and significantly more frequent lack of influence on sexual dysfunction after the ageof 60 years (p = 0.002). Statistical analysis of the study revealed the presence of a statistically significant greater improvement after the operation in terms of experience pleasure during sexual activity in patients before 60 years of age compared to people over 60 years (p < 0.001).

CONCLUSIONS: After surgery to insert a hip endoprosthesis people over the age of 60 have a greater problem back to the sexual activity compared to younger people. The longer the time since hip surgery, the less problems to sexual activity.
