Ceramic-on-ceramic bearing surfaces in total hip arthroplasties (THAs) are an attractive alternative coupling and may offer a promising option for young active patients. We evaluated the clinical results of 72 contemporary primary cementless alumina-on-alumina THAs performed in 61 patients younger than 40 years (mean age, 30 years), after a 5-year minimum follow-up. Most patients (97%) were able to return to their prearthritic activity levels, and none changed occupation because of a… CONTINUE READING
