The ScanHip total hip arthroplasty: radiographic assessment of 72 hips after 10 years.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
We analyzed the radiographic and clinical outcome of the ScanHip total hip arthroplasty in 70 patients after 10 years. The Swedish National Hip Register, in which the end-point of the survival analysis is defined as revisions, reported a 10-year survival rate of 94% with the ScanHip, but in the present series 13% of the femoral stems and 29% of the sockets met the criteria for aseptic loosening. Focal osteolysis was found around 8 sockets (11%) and 23 stems (32%) and had occurred significantly oftener around loose sockets, but not around femoral stems. Linear polyethylene wear was significantly increased in loose sockets, but no relationship was noted between polyethylene wear and stem loosening or was there a correlation between clinical symptoms or patients' satisfaction and component loosening. Therefore precise serial long-term radiographic follow-up is the only satisfactory method for detecting aseptic loosening of total hip arthroplasty. It gives the surgeon more detailed information about each case than survival analysis alone.
