Loss of periprosthetic bone tissue in primary hip endoprostheses is common in clinical practice. This loss can be progressive and in extreme conditions can jeopardize the longevity of the prosthesis. In order to monitor the function of Alendronate therapy for bone maintenance, the study included 50 patients with implanted total cement-free hip endoprosthesis (TPH). The first group of 25 patients received Alendronate, calcium and vitamin D3 orally postoperatively. The second group of 25 patients were examined postoperatively without therapy. Patients were followed by radiographic and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) at 6 and 12 months. The study showed that in patients with TPH there was a difference in the X-ray findings as well as occurrence of osteolysis in certain Gruen zones, which was confirmed by changes in the state of bone mineral density (BMD) and bone mineral content (BMC) in the interval between 6 and 12 months using the DXA method. Alendronate therapy after TPH implantation allows reduction of periprosthetic bone mass loss, maintenance of bone mineralization and implant hardening.
