Impaction grafting for femoral component revision in patients with significant bone loss has been reported using a tapered polished femoral component that is meant to subside. This study reports our results of femoral component revision using impaction grafting with a bead-blasted chrome cobalt stem designed not to subside. Forty-eight femoral component revisions using impaction grafting were retrospectively reviewed with a minimum 6 1/2-year follow-up. There were 2 failures due to aseptic loosening of the femoral component (4%). There were 22 total complications, and the overall failure rate was 21%. Impaction grafting for femoral component revision using a bead-blasted chrome cobalt stem in patients with a large femoral canal diameter has shown good results with respect to aseptic loosening with minimal subsidence.
