The authors assert the usefulness of the scintigraphy in the early diagnosis and/or for the confirmation of the main complications connected with the artroprosthesis of the hip. Such investigation is effective only if it is carried out at a distance of at least six months from the operation and must be completed by clinical, bio-humoral and radiographic tests. This study is based on the observation of 40 cases, of which 20 represent the control group. The isotope used is the Tc99m-pyrophosphate.
