High survival rate at long-term follow-up seen with tapered femoral component in young patients

September 27, 2016

Use of a tapered femoral component for primary total hip arthroplasty in patients younger than 50 years had a high rate of survival at 29 years, according to results.

Researchers reviewed 108 consecutive uncemented total hip arthroplasties (THAs) performed between 1983 and 1990 using the Taperloc (Zimmer Biomet) femoral component in 91 patients younger than 50 years of age. Researchers evaluated Harris Hip score (HHS), radiographic results, complications and Kaplan-Meier survivorship.
