INTRODUCTION Measurement of early subsidence of uncemented femoral stems can be used to evaluate the likelihood of long term stem component loosening and therefore clinical failure. Our aim was to evaluate the factors associated with subsidence in collared and uncollared versions of the Corail femoral stem. METHODS 121 hips in 113 consecutive patients were studied, operated on by two surgeons in our hospital differing in their choice of Corail stem. This gave two groups of patients with 66… CONTINUE READING
