Description: Results 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%–92%) with revision for any reason as the end point and 90% (95% confidence interval, 77%–96%) with revision for aseptic loosening.
Conclusions 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.
