We have evaluated 90 consecutive primary cementless ABG II total hip replacements. The bearings combined metal-on-polyethylene in 64 hips, and alumina-on-alumina in 26 hips. At the minimum 8-year follow-up, ten patients had died, seven had been lost to follow-up, two had undergone revision of either or both components, and 68 were still alive and had not(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Idiopathic necrosis of the medial articular surface of the tibia is exceptional. Diagnosis is quite difficult and often made late. Among the different treatments proposed, we preferred single-compartment arthroplasty. MATERIAL AND METHODS We report 8 cases in women with a mean age of 71.1 years.

We report a multicentre prospective consecutive study assessing the long-term outcome of the proximally hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated ABG II monobloc femoral component in a series of 1148 hips in 1053 patients with a mean age at surgery of 64.77 years (22 to 80) at a mean follow-up of 10.84 years (10 to 15.25). At latest follow-up, the mean total Harris hip(More)
Articles in the literature about hydroxyapatite-coated hip prostheses show both the clinical and radiological results are extremely satisfactory in the short and medium term. They bear out the reliability, constancy, and durability of bio-active fixation. As in the case of cemented prostheses, results are tempered by the emergence of complications linked(More)
