The incidence of massive early subsidence (subsidence greater than 10 mm) following impaction grafting of the femur in revision surgery is reported. The first 79 consecutive revision total hip arthroplasties using morselized allograft, polymethyl methacrylate cement, and a double-tapered, polished, collarless stem were reviewed. Nine (11%) of the 79 revision femoral prostheses showed massive subsidence, with another nine hips subsiding to a lesser degree. Further elucidation of the critical factors contributing to the initial stability of the biologic composite is required.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
