Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty With a Spongy Metal Surface Acetabular Component for Hip Dysplasia
Journal of Arthroplasty, 06/20/2012
Takigam I et al. – The radiographic outcome was no aseptic loosening in all 81 hips. The hip center was located significantly more superior than in the contralateral normal hip in 45 patients, but the difference was less than 10 mm; however, there was no significant difference in the lateral position of the hip center. The use of a Spongiosa Metal II cup for dysplastic hips provided satisfactory 5– to 10–year clinical and radiographic results.
