Temporal trends in survivorship, patient-reported outcomes, and activity levels following total hip arthroplasty were compared between 61 men and 127 women. Overall implant survivorship was excellent for both genders. Similar functional improvements were found between men and women out until 5 years. Some gender differences were observed: men had a faster time to functional recovery and higher preoperative Short-Form 12-item survey mental component scores, whereas women had a significant improvement in Short-Form 12-item survey mental component scores. Increased understanding of these differences by patients and surgeons, combined with gender-based interventions, may further advance outcomes for these patients.
