2010 Cemented hip designs are a reasonable option in young patients CORR Open Access
Eight hips (of 69) were revised (three for infection and five for aseptic loosening) and one hip dislocated for which open reduction was necessary. One additional cup was considered a radiographic failure. The 10-year survival was 83% (95% confidence interval, 69%â€“92%) with revision for any reason as the end point and 90% (95% confidence interval, 77%â€“96%) with revision for aseptic loosening.
We found a high survival rate of these cemented THA in young patients. In young patients with acetabular bone defects we recommend reconstruction using cemented implants with bone impaction grafting.
Cemented hip designs are a reasonable option in young patients.
