Sagging and inflammation of articular prostheses

In line with the articular prostheses operations becoming more wide-spread, a problem arising from sagging of the implants occurred: prostheses may loosen out from bones during years thus necessitating the replacement of them.

The 3-phase bone scintigraphy (perhaps complemented with SPECT-CT) can effectively be used to assess the status of different articular prostheses.
