The article presents an overview of things that have been learned about total hip resurfacing, which was introduced in 1998. A discussion of advances which have been made in the use of the procedure since its introduction is presented. The importance of proper patient selection in the procedure and common causes for a failure of the procedure are discussed.

    Purpose: Periprosthetic bone loss around the femoral stem is frequently found after total hip arthroplasty. We have shown that periprosthetic bone mineral density (BMD) loss using the triple tapered stem is consistently much less in comparison with the straight type component. In this study, we...
