OBJECTIVES The purpose of this retrospective study is to report the incidence of osteolysis and evaluate the significance of screening computed tomography (CT) compared to plain radiography in detecting osteolysis after total hip arthroplasty with metal-on-highly cross-linked polyethylene bearings. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 264 primary… CONTINUE READING
