Inferior Radiographic and Functional Outcomes With Modular Stem in Metal-on-Metal Total Hip Arthroplasty.


BACKGROUND Data on the association between stem type and metal-on-metal (MoM) total hip arthroplasty (THA) performance are limited. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of stem type on the prevalence of osteolysis and radiolucency, blood metal ion levels, and functional outcomes in patients with Articular Surface Replacement THA (ASR XL), a… (More)
