Uncemented total hip replacement

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Until detailed, long-term reports on the efficacy of biologically fixed implants (BFIs) are available, use of these devices must be cautioned. Although certain groups of patients, based mainly on age and quality of bone stock, are more qualified than others to receive BFIs, they must be warned of the investigational nature of this procedure. Careful and precise preoperative planning is essential to ensure maximum results and long-term stability of the implant. Indications and contraindications are discussed. The surgical technique of implanting a BFI, using the Osteonics Omnifit Hip System, is outlined. Although only a posterior approach is detailed here, any routine arthroplasty approach may be used. A postoperative management program, emphasizing gentle range-of-motion exercises gradually leading to progressive, resistive exercises is presented.
