BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of improved femoral fixation techniques on the survivorship of metal-on-metal total hip resurfacing prostheses in patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip and to report the long-term results of our patients managed earlier with first-generation fixation techniques. METHODS One hundred and three hips (ninety patients) were resurfaced for osteoarthritis secondary to developmental dysplasia. The mean age of the patients… CONTINUE READING
