Study: Good fixation, but severe stress shielding after THA found at follow-up
Patients in this study showed good fixation and no revision hip arthroplasty surgeries at 10-year and 12-year follow-up, but researchers noted severe stress shielding in almost half of the cases. "Total hip arthroplasty using Synergy stems for 50 hips showed favorable results even at 10 [years] to 12 years after surgery, with follow-ups conducted in 94 percent of cases," Dr. Tomofumi Nishino and colleagues wrote in the study.
