The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of clinical nursing pathway on the clinical symptoms, hip function and nursing satisfaction of male patients who undergo artificial hip replacement. A total of 102 male patients who had artificial hip arthroplasty and were admitted to the West China Hospital of Sichuan University were recruited. Participants were randomly divided into the study group (given clinical nursing pathway) and the control group (given routine nursing intervention). The hospitalization time, treatment cost, symptom checklist, nursing satisfaction and hip function score of the two groups were observed and compared. The hospitalization time and treatment cost of the study group were significantly lesser than those of the control group (p < 0.05). Both groups showed significant improvement in the scores of the symptom checklist, but the study group had significantly lower scores than the control group. Similarly, on the day of discharge, there was no significant difference in hip joint function scores between the two groups of patients. However, 30 days after surgery, the hip joint function scores of both groups of patients was remarkably improved (p < 0.05), yet, this improvement is significantly higher in the study group. The nursing satisfaction of the study group was higher than that of the control group, and the difference was significant (p < 0.05). The total incidence of complications in the study group was lower than the control group (5.88%, vs. 23.53%, p < 0.05). The clinical nursing pathway could effectively improve the clinical symptoms of male patients undergoing artificial hip arthroplasty, promote the recovery of hip joint function, and significantly improve the clinical nursing satisfaction. Therefore, it is one of the reliable schemes in the clinical practice of patients undergoing artificial hip arthroplasty.
