Fifteen-Year to Twenty-Year Results of Cementless Harris-Galante Porous Femoral and Harris-Galante Porous I and II Acetabular Components.
Journal - The Journal of arthroplasty
This study examined long-term survivorship of primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) using cementless Harris-Galante porous femoral and Harris-Galante porous I or II acetabular components. Of 113 hips (101 patients) studied, 60 hips (53 patients) were available for follow-up at a mean of 17.2 years after surgery. A total of 10 hips had documented revision, and 2 hips had failed radiographically. The average Harris hip score was 82. Radiographically, 12 hips demonstrated eccentric wear, 8 had osteolysis, and 1 had a broken tine. The overall survival rate was 87.7%; the mean volumetric wear rate was 74.96 mm(3); and the mean polyethylene linear penetration rate was 0.153 mm/y, similar to that of well-cemented THA in other series. This long-term outcome for an early-generation cementless THA is promising and provides a standard by which to judge the newer generation of cementless implants.
