Long-term survival of the acetabular component in revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) is determined by initial implant stability and bone ingrowth. Highly porous Trabecular Metal (TM, Zimmer, Inc, Warsaw, Ind) facilitates ingrowth and may be an ideal material for revision THA. The outcome and survivorship of a TM, nonmodular, uncemented acetabular cup were assessed in 60 consecutive patients undergoing revision THA (mean follow-up, 42 months; range, 14-68 months). Most (55/60) acetabular cups… CONTINUE READING
