BACKGROUND We hypothesized that certain patient characteristics have different effects on the risk of early stem loosening in total hip arthroplasty (THA). We therefore conducted a case-control study using register-database records with the aim of identifying patient-specific risk factors associated with radiographic signs of aseptic loosening of the femoral component in THA. METHOD Data were derived from a multinational European registry and were collected over a period of 25 years. 725… CONTINUE READING
