More Compelling Evidence to Support Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty
More compelling evidence to support hip resurfacing arthroplasty. Published September 9, 2020, the paper discusses a study delivered by twenty seven hip resurfacing professionals from thirteen countries who collaborated to review a cohort of 11,382 hip resurfacing arthroplasties.
The focus was on a varied group of patients both male and female, ⩽50 years of age and aimed to analyse arthroplasty outcomes with a mean follow-up of 7.6 years. In total, 18 different metal-on-metal (MoM) hip resurfacing designs were included in the study.
In men, implant survivorship was excellent: 99% at 10 years and 92.5% at 21 years.
In females, implant survivorship was 90% at 10 years and 81.3% at 22 years.
Implant survivorship of 11,063 cases was 95% at 10 years and 90% at 22 years.
The authors note Higher demands for activity and functionality in younger patients make HRA a potential alternative to Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA).
