Abstract

Background: The primary aim of our study was to assess clinical performance, patient reported outcome and radiological results of cementless primary total hip arthroplasty using Tri-Lock Bone Preservation Stem. Methods: Between March 2010 and June 2012, 163 consecutive patients, were enrolled in the study. Patients were assessed clinically and radiographically prior to surgery as well as at 6, 12, 24 months and then at 5, 6, and 7 years postoperatively. Results: Using the Dorr classification, 39 patients (23.9%) were classified as Dorr A, 116 patients (71.2%) as Dorr B, and 8 patients (4.9%) as Dorr C. A total of 139 patients (85.3%) received a high offset, whereas 24 patients (14.7%) received a standard offset stem. Total Harris Hip Score of the patients increased from a mean of 27.29 (±4.6) preoperatively, upto 97.28 (±9.0) after 5 years. Mean preoperative Short Form-12 (SF-12) Physical Health Composite Scale score was 27.31 (±3.8). After 5 year was 55.3 (34-57). The mean preoperative SF-12 Mental Health Composite Scale score was 57.02 (±5.9). After 5 year was 59.3 (28.7-60.8). Only one patient underwent revision surgery for dislocation and revision of the head. Conclusion: Tri-lock Bone Preservation Stem DePuy proved to be an easy-to-use device. Results obtained up to 7 years of FU show excellent clinical performance, as well as radiographic osseointegration, with no cases of aseptic loosening and no images of progressive radiolucent lines or periprosthetic osteolysis.
