The right hip hemiarthroplasty is normally aligned and uncomplicated. There is a segment (approx 10cm) of disconnected surgical drain tubing in the lateral soft tissues of the left hip.
Mild left hip osteoarthritis.
The drain tubing was removed due to the risk of infection. M/C/S of the tubing was negative.
