Dramatic fall in death rates for Hip Replacements

A study published in the Lancet have found that death rates for those who receive a hip replacement have now halved between 2003 and 2011.

Death within 90 days of surgery are rare, but have found to have fallen to 0.29% from 0.56%, a study of 400,000 patients has shown.

It is thought that the decrease is due to  better post operative care and advances in the drugs used in the procedures.
