Using computed tomography-assisted (CT) osteodensitometry, we studied the bone changes that occurred in 12 patients at 2 weeks and again at 1 year after total hip arthroplasty with insertion of a press-fit acetabular cup and an uncemented femoral tapered stem. There was a greater decrease in full bone density (BD) lateral to the femoral stem when compared to the medial side, at the proximal end of the femur this difference was significant (-22.1% versus -16.2%) (P<0.001). At the tip of the stem… CONTINUE READING
