A total of 410 hips were randomized to treatment with either a Charnley (206 hips) or a Spectron (204 hips) total hip arthroplasty. The patients were operated on by a standardized procedure using a contemporary cementing technique and were followed after 1, 3, 5 to 6, and 10 years. The postoperative radiographs showed a significantly increased rate of malalignment and consequently low grade of cement mantle quality of the Charnley stem compared to the Spectron. No differences concerning cement… CONTINUE READING
