Based upon promising early results in primary THA, porous-surfaced implants designed for bone ingrowth fixation are being increasingly used in hopes of more successfully achieving these goals than has been the case using cement. One hundred and sixty such revisions were followed for a mean of 4.4 years, with specific reference to implant fixation. Roentgenographic evaluation of implant… CONTINUE READING
