A number of cementless femoral stems are associated with excellent long-term survivorship. Cementless designs differ from one another in terms of geometry and the means of obtaining initial fixation. Strict classification of stem designs is important in order to compare results among series; Loosening and thigh pain are less prevalent with modern stem designs. Stress-shielding is present in most cases, even with newer stem designs.

    The article justifies the claim that cemented fixation is the standard for femoral stem fixation in total hip replacement. It cites survivorship rates at greater than ninety-five percent at ten to twenty years. Cemented fixation provides a quicker recovery of function, a lower incidence of thigh...

    Background: Modular femoral stems are one option for revision THA surgeons and allow offset restoration, leg length discrepancy correction, and stability independent of distal stem fixation. The complexity of revision THA usually leads surgeons to use multiple revision hip designs to address...

    The optimal surface for a cementless femoral stem has been a subject of debate for the past several years. Several researchers have stressed the need for research on how an implant surface shape contributes to long-term stability after implantation, in the field of orthopaedics. The introduction...

    Background: This study was undertaken to provide a basis for decision-making when a well-fixed cemented cup is encountered at the time of a revision of a femoral component of a total hip replacement. It may be beneficial to retain the cup in some instances and thus reduce morbidity,...

    Abstract  Revision after failed THA resulting from loosening of the femoral component can be challenging even for experienced surgeons. Aseptic loosening usually is associated with some degree of bone loss. We asked whether the Zweymüller SLR-Plus®, along with allograft...

    Failed treatment of an intertrochanteric fracture typically leads to profound functional disability and pain. Salvage treatment with hip arthroplasty may be considered. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results and complications of hip arthroplasty performed as a salvage procedure after...

    Purpose: We evaluated the results of more than 10 years of follow-up of total hip arthroplasty using a second-generation cementless femoral prosthesis with a collar and straight distal fixation channels. Materials and Methods: One hundred five patients (129 hips) who underwent surgery between...

    In this article the authors discuss an experimental study which examines femoral cement pressurisation for total hip arthroplasty (THA) in previously fixated hips. The authors assert that the study affirms the notion that cement pressures are significant lower in femora with previous drill...
