We compared the magnitudes of motion between the prosthesis and bone during axial and torsional loading in seven matched pairs of fresh-frozen femora of cadavera in which an uncemented, collarless, isthmus-filling, straight-stem (Harris-Galante) prosthesis had been placed in one femur and an uncemented, collarless, proximal-filling, curved-stem (anatomic) prosthesis had been placed in the other femur. The comparison was performed in order to determine the effect of the geometry of the stem on… CONTINUE READING
