This review aims to update the reader with current thinking and research related to the well documented phenomenon of squeaking hip arthroplasties. The etiology of squeaking is multifactorial and still not well understood. We aim to share our own experience and views on the combination of factors we believe increases the likelihood of squeaking, along with mechanisms by which the sound may be generated. Recent published findings from other groups are summarized along with an appropriate management algorithm we recommend for this cohort of patients.
