Femoral impaction grafting in revision total hip arthroplasty
Lamberton, Tony D., Kenny, Paddy J., Whitehouse, Sarah L., Timperley, A. John, & Gie, Graham A. (2011) Femoral impaction grafting in revision total hip arthroplasty. Journal of Arthroplasty, 26(8), pp. 1154-1160.
Between 1987 and 1999, 540 revision total hip replacements in 487 patients were performed at our institution with the femoral impaction grafting technique with a cemented femoral stem. All patients were prospectively followed for 2-15years post-operatively with no loss to follow-up. 494 hips remained successfully in situ at an average 6.7years.
The ten year survival rate was 98.0% (95% CI 96.2 to 99.8) with aseptic loosening as the endpoint and 84.2% (95% CI 78.5 to 89.9) for re-operation for any reason. Indication for surgery and the use of any kind of reinforcement significantly influenced outcome (p<0.001).
This is the largest known series of revision THR with femoral impaction grafting and the results support continued use of this technique.
