Ms K underwent a right total hip replacement, aged 56 years old. Following surgery, she was left with persistent pain and a limp, which meant she had to rely on a walking stick and assistance around the house.

It was established that her ongoing issues were as a result of a leg length discrepancy.

Pryers were instructed to investigate the case and found that one of the components had been inserted at the incorrect depth, resulting in a 26mm leg length discrepancy.

Medical opinion was that Ms K’s hip prosthesis would last a lifetime.

Although the option of revision surgery was available, to attempt to rectify the leg length discrepancy and eliminate the associated symptoms, Ms K opted not to have this surgery, as it also carried considerable risk.

Because of the permanent disability, Ms K’s claim included the costs of: care, aids and equipment, an automatic vehicle, stair lift, mobility scooter, and specialist orthotics.

After some initial resistance, the Hospital Trust eventually conceded that if the surgery had not been negligent, Ms K would not have been left with any significant leg length discrepancy and they admitted that the difficulties were the result of negligent surgery.

The case was scheduled for trial, but the Defendant agreed an out of Court settlement of over £125,000.
