Excellent long-term outcomes found with cementless titanium-tapered femoral component for THA

April 27, 2017

Patients who underwent total hip arthroplasty with a contemporary, cementless titanium-tapered femoral component inserted with a ream-and-broach technique experienced excellent outcomes, clinical durability and osteointegration at a minimum 10-year follow-up, according to results.

Researchers clinically evaluated 88 patients who underwent 100 total hip arthroplasties (THAs) with the Summit Porocoat femoral component (DePuy). Investigators studied revision rates and patients’ WOMAC score, SF-36 score, Harris Hip score, and UCLA and Tegner activity scores. Researchers assessed for loosening, osteolysis and stress shielding with radiographic evaluation. End points for revision and radiographic evidence of femoral component loosening were included in the Kaplan-Meier survivorship analysis.
