The concept

The concept of this website is based on a previous site that was founded in 2008 and is still up and running. The website is composed as a book, where all sources are properly referenced, according to a good practice in scientific publications.

    Heterotopic ossification of the hip following total hip replacement - Brooker Classification

    Brooker classification divides heterotopic ossifications that form following total hip replacement to four classes. It was published in 1973 by Brooker et al.

    Class Description
    Class I islands of bone within soft tissues around hip
    Class II bone spurs in pelvis or proximal end of femur leaving ≥1 cm between the opposing bone surfaces
    Class III bone spurs that extend from pelvis or the proximal end of femur, which reduce the space between the opposing bone surfaces to <1cm
    Class IV ankylosis of the hip on x-ray
