Abstract

This report represents a 5- to 10-year follow-up of our initial 2- to 5-year data with this proximally hydroxyapatite-coated stem design (Secur-Fit, Stryker Orthopaedics, Mahwah, NJ). This is a retrospective review of a single surgeon's consecutive cases. A total of 105 cases were available for complete review. The average follow-up was 6.7 years (60-123 months). All stems achieved bony ingrowth. Harris hip score and Oxford hip score averaged to 91 and 17, respectively, with no differences seen between the 132° and the 127° stem designs. Leg length measurements were considered equal side-to-side differences of 7 mm or less in 87% of cases: 82% of standard- and 92% of high-offset cases (P < .05). Four cases of osteolysis were identified and occurred only in patients with an elevated rim liner, implicating neck-liner impingement. The stem design performed exceedingly well over the course of this study. Having a high-offset option aids the surgeon in proper leg length management.
