Metal on metal total hip arthroplasty using modular acetabular shells.

Abstract

Metal on metal bearings were reintroduced into the United States for use in total hip arthroplasty approximately a decade ago. We evaluated a consecutive series cohort of 148 patients with 169 hips who underwent THR using a metal on metal bearing surface with a modular acetabular shell that had fixation augmentation with dome screws.
