Hip involvement in Ankylosing Spondylitis is common and leads to physical and function restriction. Hip replacement surgery is a successful and effective treatment for end-stage hip involvement; however in Ankylosing Spondylitis patient’s prosthesis long-term survival is lesser than other causes of hip osteoarthritis.
