On the basis of positive clinical results with mid- and long-term follow-up using the Mayo short stem, the Metha neck-preserving stem (BBraun, Aesculap, Tuttlingen, Germany) was introduced. The purpose of this study was to validate the implant design by direct acquisition of bone remodelling data from total hip arthroplasty (THA) recipients using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). After power analysis, 25 patients were included in this prospective study. Patients were examined clinically… CONTINUE READING
