In a prospective study of 14 patients undergoing total hip replacement we have used dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) to investigate remodelling of the bone around two different designs of cementless femoral prosthesis. The bone mineral density (BMD) was measured at 12-weekly intervals for a year. Eight patients (group A) had a stiff, collarless implant and six (group B) a flexible isoelastic implant. Patients in group A showed a decrease in BMD from 14 weeks after operation. By 12 months… CONTINUE READING
