This is a report of two sickle cell patients (HbSS) with advanced osteoarthritis of the right hip. The patients were in Ficat and Arlet's stage 3 and 4 respectively. Both were females aged 23 and 46 years and they had uncemented hydroxyapatite coated omnifit (Stryker Howmedica Osteonics) total hip prosthetic replacement. The results so far have been quite encouraging. The procedure is technically demanding, fraught with risks and expensive but very useful. This is the first of such reports in Nigeria.
