Porous-coated acetabular component. Quantitative assessment of normal radiophosphate uptake as a function of implant age.


A computer-assisted quantitative analysis was undertaken of normal radiophosphate bone uptake adjacent to the porous-coated acetabular component in asymptomatic patients. Implants ranged from 1.6 to 49 months of age. In 62 hips, it was found that implants newer than 12 months of age had uptakes that were significantly greater than those 12 months or older… (More)
