Is it common after a hip joint replacement for the joint to become loose?

In brief: THA loosening

May be related to implant design, polyethylene design, injury, fracture, dislocation, infection, bone quality, osteoporosis, soft tissue quality, inadequate muscle forces, as well as the procedural nuances.
All told, these are not that common.
