PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The failures of cemented hip prosthesis have prompted research into a new process of fixation and a new design of the system. Stability is achieved by adherence the bone onto a blasted titanium surface. The shell is implanted without screws. The stem has an anatomical shape to improve metaphyseal fixation of the femur. MATERIAL AND METHODS The rugosity of the blasted titanium surface which has an average depth of 50 millimicrons allows new bone-growth without any fibrous… CONTINUE READING
