Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A study was carried out to determine the influence of prosthesis design on fixation and to detect patients at high risk of mechanical aseptic loosening. The migration of implant in-vivo was quantified. Subsidence of hip arthroplasty was not found while the greater displacement was found in the tip of the stem.
