[Medium-term results of anatomic straight-shaft IMAGE implantation in primary hip joint endoprosthetics--a prospective study].

Abstract

AIM The IMAGE prosthesis was developed with the objective of proximal load induction to avoid stress shielding and proximal bone resorption. In this study patients were followed clinically and radiologically with a special emphasis on osteointegration of the shaft in the proximal and distal regions. In addition, the reconstruction of the bony geometry of… (More)
