  Purpose

This is a prospective, randomized study comparing two different bone preparation techniques for insertion of a hydroxylapatite (HA) coated titanium cementless femoral stem. Patients who receive a unilateral total hip replacement are randomized to either conventional broaching or compaction.

Hypothesis: Compaction results in significantly less stem migration [evaluated by radiostereometric analysis (RSA)], less peri-prosthetic bone mineral density (BMD) loss [evaluated by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA)], and a higher Harris hip score after two years.


Condition Intervention
Coxarthrosis
Procedure: Bone preparation technique: compaction
Procedure: Bone preparation technique: conventional technique

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Compaction Femur Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) Uni-lateral

    A check-up by means of DEXA scanning after 1 week, 1 year, 2 years and 5 years.


Enrollment: 26
