The article discusses the clinical consequences and new developments to better understand the mechanisms of impingement in total hip replacement. Impingement is a dynamic process which is influenced by prosthetic design with component position, biomechanical factors, and patient variables. Operative techniques in preventing impingement were identified which include medialization of the cup to avoid component impingement and restoration of hip offset and length to avoid osseous impingement.

    We report the updated results for a previously evaluated patient cohort who had uncemented total hip arthroplasties using the Lord femoral component. The original cohort consisted of 114 total hip arthroplasties (110 patients) performed from 1979 to 1984. The patients were followed up for an...

    Total hip arthroplasty changes bone loading conditions in the proximal femur and induces adaptive remodelling of the periprosthetic bone. These remodelling processes depend on many implant-specific qualities, e.g. material and elasticity of the stem. The objective of this study was to...
