Abstract

The results of the first 56 consecutive total hip replacements using a new cementless, sandwich (alumina-polyethylene-titanium) acetabular component are reported. From March 1994 to March 1995 we operated on 39 female and 17 male patients; their mean age was 62.8 years (range 32-85 years). The Harris Hip Score was used for clinical evaluation. X-rays were examined according to the DeLee and Charnley method. At an average follow up of 62.4 months, 51 patients had complete clinical and radiographic data. For them, we recorded a good clinical result (average HHS 90.6), and we could detect no acetabular radiolucencies on X-rays. At the 5-year follow-up the results of this ceramic acetabular cup are quite encouraging. As a matter of fact, although the clinical results are very similar to those reported by other authors with conventional ceramic-polyethylene coupling prosthesis, the absence of periacetabular radiolucency and socket migration could mean less debris formation, less acetabular wear and, consequently, a longer life of the implant.
