BACKGROUND We previously reported the outcomes of a case-control study, at a minimum of five years of follow-up, comparing metal-on-metal and ceramic-on-polyethylene bearings for cementless primary hip arthroplasty in active patients below the age of fifty years. This report is an update on these groups after a minimum duration of follow-up of twelve years. METHODS Thirty-nine metal-on-metal cementless hip replacements with a 28-mm-diameter Metasul articulation were compared with a control… CONTINUE READING
