Measurements were made from annual follow-up radiographs, obtained over 27.6 years, of 860 cemented total hip arthroplasties implanted by one surgeon. Femoral components were made of stainless steel or titanium alloy, were non-modular, and were all fixed with cement, and acetabular cups were all-polyethylene and were fixed with cement. Radiographic outcome was correlated with the shape and material of the femoral component. Specifically, throughout the follow-up, stems made of titanium alloy… CONTINUE READING
