Smith-Petersen mould arthroplasty: an ultra-long-term follow-up.


We present a case of a Smith-Petersen mould arthroplasty in a 77-year-old man. The implant was inserted by Sir John Charnley himself in 1948. The patient is pain-free and walks without aids. At 56 years, this case represents the longest surviving Smith-Petersen mould arthroplasty with a satisfactory result in the current literature.
