For displaced subcapital fractures of the femoral neck, the uncemented Austin Moore is the most frequently used monoblock hemiarthroplasty in Australia. Commonly this procedure is reserved for the elderly or frail low demand patient, who represents a poor candidate for revision should the prosthesis fail. Technical errors in implantation of the uncemented Austin Moore are common, and have been associated with early failure of the prosthesis. This study aims to assess the technical accuracy of implantation of the uncemented Austin Moore prosthesis, with specific reference to Orthopaedic Registrars.

Search Google Scholar™

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
