Forty-three patients who had undergone cementless THA were randomly assigned to receive no osteoactive drug or oral risedronate for 6 months. Postoperative decrease of BMD in the risedronate group was significantly lower than that seen in the control group in zones 1, 2, 3, 6, and 7. Proximal bone resorption around the femoral stem often has been observed after total hip arthroplasty (THA), could lead to late stem loosening. We previously reported the efficacy of etidronate on periprosthetic… CONTINUE READING
