    Tran Trung Dung*, Pham Trung Hieu and Nguyen Thi Thuy Dung

    Objectives: Evaluation of the quality of life for patient with total hip arthroplasty surgery (THA) and

    whether patients with poor function before THA have the ability to recover less than those with less

    preoperative disability.

    Subjects and methods: A prospective study evaluated the preoperative and 3-month postoperative

    health-related quality of life score of 41 patients with THA due to hip osteoarthritis (OA) and femoral head

    necrosis (FHN) in Hanoi Medical University Hospital from February 201 to November 2017. The study

    divided into 2 function groups following the median preoperative Western Ontario McMaster Universities

    Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) physical function scores.

    Results: Average age is 53.78± 8.95. Male/female ratio is approximately 3: 1. 87.8% patients with

    femoral head necrosis situation. 100% patients had good health related to quality of life. However, low

    function group improves more signifi cantly than high function group. In addition, the proportion of normal

    number patients after 3 months of THA between low and high function group was 20.38%, and 23.53%,

    respectively for WOMAC physical functioning.

    Conclusion: Total hip arthroplasty surgery signifi cantly improves patient health and well-being. THA

    surgery helps patients improve signifi cant quality of life regardless the level of physical functioning before
