An attempt at radiological estimation of remodelling of allogenic bone grafts used in reconstruction of bone stock in revision of hip arthroplasty. The method: x-ray pictures of the treated hips were taken immediatelly and at 3, 6 and 12 months after surgery. Changes of bone structure around the prosthesis were estimated. The results: symptoms of remodelling (presence of newly formed bone trabecules betWeen host bone and the grafts and in the surrounding area) were encountered at 3 to 6 months after reconstruction surgery. Conclusions: radiological estimation of bone remodelling remains subjective. Nevertheless it can help to determine bone graft rebuilding in revision surgery of the hip.
