BACKGROUND High wear rates and femoral and acetabular osteolysis have been-and still are-the main problems in uncemented total hip replacement. We reviewed 96 consecutive cementless total hip replacements of 4 different designs. PATIENTS AND METHODS 21 PCA, 25 Harris Galante Porous/Harris Galante I (stem/cup), 25 Profile pressfit/ Tri-Lock Plus (stem/cup) and 25 Profile HA-coated/Tri-Lock Plus (stem/cup) prostheses were included. The operations were performed in the period 1984-1991. Median… CONTINUE READING
