Since the early 1990s, there has been a dramatic increase in modular total hip designs ranging from a stem with a proximal taper and modular head, to a distal stem, double taper proximal neck, and modular head. Clinical advantages of the modular neck include intraoperative adjustment of leg length via the neck-head taper and femoral anteversion via the neck-stem taper. Sixteen cases of a double tapered cone, Margron hip prosthesis, were presented for retrieval analysis. Macroscopic inspection… CONTINUE READING
