AIM
The aim of study was to evaluate the outcome of total hip arthroplasty in avascular necrosis of hip.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
Total hip replacement is done in Gandhi Hospital for Ficat 3rd & 4th stages of avascular necrosis of hip. Our study included patients reporting to Gandhi Medical College/Hospital from September 2013 to May 2016, operated by Total Hip Arthroplasty using cemented/uncemented prosthesis and those who were available for followup.

CONCLUSION
In properly selected cases, Total Hip Arthroplasty offers a better alternative procedure currently available for avascular necrosis of hip.
