BACKGROUND Intraoperative proximal femoral fracture is a risk in total hip arthroplasty (THA) with cementless stems with reported rates of 1.5-27.8%. Certain designs or designs associated with certain types of instrumentation may have higher rates. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We compared the incidence of proximal femoral fracture with two stem and instrument design systems. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 425 patients (457 hips) undergoing primary THAs using a supine, muscle-sparing approach… CONTINUE READING
