Purpose. Сomplications after hip/knee/other joint arthroplasty develop in approximately 1–1.5% of young people and in 2.5–3% of elderly patients. Despite the meager chance of devel-oping negative consequences, they can affect anyone, especially those who did not follow the rigorous rehabilitation program. Complications after endoprosthetics of hip/knee/other joints results from incorrect postoperative care and physical activity after discharge from the hospi-tal. The second reason is technical approach of the surgeon. And third is an inadequate pre-operative examination. The aim of the article is to have a detailed description of short term, midterm and long-term complications after joint replacement surgeries and of the methods (clinical and radiological) to avoid those complications with all the required parameters.
