Precoated femoral component in primary hybrid total hip arthroplasty: results at a mean 10-year follow-up.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This is a mid-term report at 10 years' mean follow-up of a study of a precoated femoral component used in primary hybrid total hip arthroplasty (THA). Of an original cohort of 98 hips undergoing THA performed by one surgeon, 75 hips in 65 patients (mean age, 67 years) were prospectively followed up for 7 to 12 years (mean, 10 years). All hips had the same porous coated acetabular component and a precoated femoral component (with an oval cross-section) implanted using Simplex bone cement (Howmedica, Rutherford, NJ). There was no femoral component loosening or revision. Two acetabular components in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and protrusio acetabulae had radiographic loosening; however, only 1 was symptomatic and was revised. Acetabular osteolysis was seen in 4 hips (5.3%), and minor femoral osteolysis was seen in 3 hips (4%). Used in this manner in this patient population, precoating is not detrimental to successful fixation at 10 years' mean follow-up of primary hybrid THA.
