BACKGROUND After total hip replacement bone remodelling is determinant for the implant survival. This study asked whether the immediate postoperative amount and distribution of bone can predict the changes in bone amount and distribution after five years in the case of younger patients with custom uncemented implant. METHODS We investigated 17 hips with a mean follow-up of 5.1 years. The average patient age at follow-up was 48.5 years. We used immediate postoperative and five-year dual energy… CONTINUE READING
