Low dislocation, neck fracture rates seen with titanium modular neck for THA

October 23, 2017

Results from this single-center study demonstrated low dislocation and neck fracture rates after uncemented total hip arthroplasty performed with a titanium modular neck.

Researchers reviewed 809 THAs from a prospectively collected database. The mean follow-up was 5.7 years. Investigators used either a titanium, flat-tapered, wedge femoral stem or titanium, rectangular, dual-tapered, femoral stem. Both implants used a titanium neck. Complications, such as fracture, dislocation or aseptic lymphocyte-dominated vasculitis-associated lesions, were noted.
