Failure of cementless fixation of the femoral component in total hip arthroplasty.

Abstract

The basic concepts involved in cementless fixation of the total hip arthroplasty femoral component have been controversial. Some clinicians advocate fixation only of the proximal portion of the stem so that weight-bearing loads will be transferred proximally, and proximal stress shielding will be avoided. Others advocate distal fixation to ensure rigidity… (More)
