The influence of stem size and extent of porous coating on femoral bone resorption was examined in 411 cases of primary cementless hip arthroplasty. Moore design, cobalt alloy femoral implants with powder-made sintered porous coating on either one-third, two-thirds, or the full implant length were compared radiographically two years after surgery. A semiquantitative method was adopted for assessing resorption that involved dividing the anteroposterior (AP) and lateral roentgenograms into a… CONTINUE READING
