343 primary arthroplasties using the AML stem were performed between 1978 and June, 1984 with a mean follow-up of 4.8 years. All had a two-year reading of stem fixation as: 1) bone ingrown or optimum (81%), 2) fibrous encapsulated or suboptimum stable (16%), or 3) unstable (3%). Using a roentgenographic end-point, we performed a 0-8 year survivor analysis of stem fixation. The cumulative survivorship rate (CSR) was 85% at eight years. Among 142 undersized stems, thirteen failed by migration… CONTINUE READING
