The Birmingham Mid-Head Resection (BMHR) is a bone-conserving, short-stem alternative to hip resurfacing for patients with compromised femoral head anatomy. The current study examined the effect of coronal implant alignment and femoral neck notching on proximal femoral strength with the BMHR. Neither relative valgus nor varus implant alignment had a significant impact on femoral strength compared to neutrally aligned, matched, paired cadaveric specimens. A 5-mm superior neck notch significantly… CONTINUE READING
