The results of revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) for ceramic head fracture have generally been disappointing, largely due to third body wear after incomplete synovectomy. We have followed 8 patients who sustained ceramic head fractures and were subsequently revised to a metal-on-polyethylene articulation. There were no revisions for osteolysis or aseptic loosening at a mean follow-up of 10.5 years. The yearly wear rates of each of 5 of these THAs after revision were compared with 6 matched… CONTINUE READING
