Hip resurfacing demonstrates good survivorship as a treatment for young patients with osteoarthritis, but occasional implant loosening failures occur. On the femoral side there is radiographic evidence suggesting that the implant stem bears load, which is thought to lead to proximal stress shielding and adaptive bone remodelling. Previous attempts aimed at… CONTINUE READING
