Abstract
The aim of this study was to assess the midterm results of primary cementless total hip arthroplasty using a tapered stem and alumina bearing couple in active patients. After a minimum of 5 years of follow-up, 78 arthroplasties in 72 patients were reviewed retrospectively. The mean Harris hip score was 94 points, and 2 hips had thigh pain. All components radiographically demonstrated stable fixation by bone ingrowth and mild stress shielding of the proximal femur were noted in 14% of hips. There was no significant osteolysis or aseptic loosening. There was a ceramic head fracture in 1 hip and audible sounds in 2 hips. The results of total hip arthroplasty with a straight, tapered, proximally porous-coated stem and alumina-on-alumina bearing were encouraging for active patients.
