Purpose: This study analyzed the long-term results of cementless total hip arthroplasty using an extensively porous coated stem in patients younger than 45 years old. Materials and Methods: The clinical and radiographic results of 45 hips from 38 patients who underwent cementless total hip replacement arthroplasty with an AML prosthesis were reviewed retrospectively. The average follow-up was 12 years (range, 10-15 years). Results: The average Harris hip score at the time of final follow-up was 87.3 (range 77-94) points. Forty two hips (93.3%) showed excellent and good clinical results. Osteolysis occurred around the stem in 20 hips (44.4%) and around the cup in 26 hips (57.8%). Stress-mediated femoral resorption was observed in 33 hips (73.3%) at 10 years. There was no incidence of resorption progressing after 5 years postoperatively. There was no stem loosening. Five hips were revised for osteolysis, cup loosening and polyethylene wear. Conclusion: The long term results of total hip arthroplasty using an extensively porous coated stem were acceptable, and there was no case involving the progression of proximal bone resorption.

    Background: A femoral implant with a modular sleeve and stem has been designed to allow independent and complete metaphyseal-diaphyseal fit and fill as well as independent rotation to accommodate anteversion at the time of THA. Questions/purposes: In a prospective study we asked whether such a...

    Abstract  Cementless total hip replacement (THR) is rapidly being accepted as the surgery for arthritic diseases of the hip joint. The bone-ingrowth rate in porous-type cementless implants was about 90% over 10 years after surgery, showing that biological fixation of cementless THR was...

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the first 100 cementless ceramic-on-ceramic total hip arthroplasty (THA) performed at our institution with more than nine years of follow-up. Clinical evaluation was performed using Harris hip score. Radiological evaluation was performed by two surgeons....

    Abstract  The cause of isolated osteolysis in the femoral shaft around stem implants in patients with cemented THR has so far not been established. A number of factors have been considered such as torsional stability of the femoral stem implant, the time of reduction...

    Total hip arthroplasty is one of the most commonly performed and successful elective orthopaedic procedures. However, numerous failure mechanisms limit the long-term success including aseptic osteolysis, aseptic loosening, infection, and implant instability. Aseptic osteolysis and subsequent...

    Background: Alternative bearing materials in THA have been developed to reduce the incidence of osteolysis. Alumina-on-alumina bearings exhibit extremely low wear rates in vitro, but concerns exist regarding component impingement with the potential for dislocation and the occurrence of noise....

    Femoral deformity in primary total hip arthroplasty can make restoration of joint biomechanics difficult. The S-ROM (DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., Warsaw, Ind) prosthesis' modular design allows for independent matching of diaphyseal and metaphyseal anatomy. Corrective osteotomy may also be performed...

    A concern about modular stems is that the taper will not provide an adequate seal, causing the stem distal to the taper to become part of the effective joint space. In this study, 380 primary patients and 309 revision patients were treated with a proximally modular stem. Follow-up was between 5...
