Keywords Revision; Hip; Arthroplasty; Internet; Quality; Readability
Core Tip Information related to revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) on the internet is of generally poor quality and seems to be of lower quality than information relating to primary THA on the internet. Only 28% of websites had ‘good’ quality information as determined by both the validated DISCERN score and the novel revision THA-specific Vancouver Revision Arthroplasty Information score. We recommend that patients use governmental websites as these are the most readable on the internet. We also recommend the use of health information websites as these were of the highest quality overall. Academic websites should be avoided as sources of patient information given their advanced readability and overall lack of patient-relevant content relating to revision THA.
