The concentric all-polyethylene Exeter acetabular component in primary total hip replacement
Veitch, Stephen W., Whitehouse, Sarah L., Howell, Jonathan R., Hubble, Matthew J. W., Gie, Graham A., & Timperley, A. John (2010) The concentric all-polyethylene Exeter acetabular component in primary total hip replacement. Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery: British Volume, 92-B(10), pp. 1351-1355.
We report the long term outcome of the flangeless, cemented all polyethylene Exeter cup at a mean of 14.6 years (range 10-17) after operation. Of the 263 hips in 243 patients, 122 hips are still in situ, 112 patients (119 hips) have died, eighteen hips were revised, and three patients (four hips) had moved abroad and were lost to follow-up (1.5%). Radiographs demonstrated two sockets had migrated and six more had radiolucent lines in all three zones. The Kaplan Meier survivorship at 15 years with endpoint revision for all causes is 89.9% (95% CI 84.6 to 95.2%) and for aseptic cup loosening or lysis 91.7% (CI 86.6 to 96.8%). In 210 hips with a diagnosis of primary osteoarthritis survivorship for all causes is 93.2% (95% CI 88.1 to 98.3%), and for aseptic cup loosening 95.0% (CI 90.3 to 99.7%). The cemented all polyethylene Exeter cup has an excellent long-term survivorship.
