A retrospective review was conducted to evaluate the medium-term results of the ZMR modular revision taper stem. From March 1999 to December 2002, 65 consecutive hip revision surgeries were performed mostly for aseptic loosening. Femoral bone stock defects were classified according to AAOS’s criteria and consisted mainly in type II and type III. A Wagner osteotomy was performed in 25 cases to remove primary implants that were cemented in 35 cases. Mean post-operative follow-up was 69 months (range, 36 to 91months). Clinical assessment at follow-up showed a significantly improved mean Harris Hip Score from 42 points preoperatively to 81 points postoperatively, while the x-ray examination did show a satisfactory distal integration of the stem in all cases and satisfactory reconstitution of the femoral bone stock in 47% of cases. The average subsidence of the stem at follow-up was under one millimeter.

Abstract

A retrospective review was conducted to evaluate the medium-term results of the ZMR modular revision taper stem. From March 1999 to December 2002, 65 consecutive hip revision surgeries were performed mostly for aseptic loosening. Femoral bone stock defects were classified according to AAOS’s criteria and consisted mainly in type II and type III. A Wagner osteotomy was performed in 25 cases to remove primary implants that were cemented in 35 cases. Mean post-operative follow-up was 69 months (range, 36 to 91months). Clinical assessment at follow-up showed a significantly improved mean Harris Hip Score from 42 points preoperatively to 81 points postoperatively, while the x-ray examination did show a satisfactory distal integration of the stem in all cases and satisfactory reconstitution of the femoral bone stock in 47% of cases. The average subsidence of the stem at follow-up was under one millimeter. According to the data leg length discrepancy exceeding 15 millimeters caused significantly higher functional impairment and more pain.
