The ability of uncemented femoral stems to osseointegrate properly depends largely on their fit in the proximal femur. We evaluated the topography of the proximal femur and determined differences based on age and sex. Retrospectively, anteroposterior radiographs from 312 (168 male, 144 female) pre-operative total hip arthroplasty (THA) patients (age of 21-85 years) were collected. Radiographic measurements were taken at 10 mm intervals along the length of the femur. Variables including canal… CONTINUE READING
