The purpose of this study was to examine the concept of proximal load initiation of a total short-stemmed hip arthroplasty (Metha® BBraun, Aesculap, Tuttlingen, Germany) on the basis of bone variations by means of osteodensitometric dual energy X-ray absorptiometry and radiologic measurements. After power analysis 40 patients were included in this study. DXA examination, radiological and clinical follow-up was performed pre-operatively and postoperatively. Socio-demographic relevancies of bone… CONTINUE READING
