We report the incidence and risk factors of heterotopic ossification after noncemented ceramic total hip arthroplasty. All of the operations were performed by one surgeon using the same operative approach and type of fixation. The patients were allowed to walk using two crutches and full weight-bearing usually on the 7th postoperative day. They were discharged on the 26th postoperative day on average, using one cane. In contrast, heterotopic ossification was evident in 12.2% of the hips, and
more » ... major risk factor was hypertrophic type described by Bombelli. Accelarated rehabilitation did not affect the incidence of heterotopic ossification.
