abstract = "In a consecutive series of hip revisions due to mechanical loosening, using impacted morselized allografts and cement, we followed 21 acetabular components by radiostereometric analysis (RSA) during 2 years. All but 1 acetabular component migrated in the proximal direction (median 2.1 (0.5-6.4) mm). 6 components migrated in the medial direction (median 0.8 (0.4-1.2) mm) and 6 in the lateral (median 0.8 (0.4-2.0) mm). 14 components migrated in the posterior direction (median 0.8 (0.3-2.3) mm) and 1 in the anterior 0.6 mm. The migration rate gradually decreased in all directions, but 7 acetabular components still migrated in at least 1 direction (median 0.3-0.6 mm) between 1.5 and 2 years postoperatively.",
