Performing total hip arthroplasty (THA) as early as possible is recommended for rapidly destructive coxarthrosis (RDC) as it causes pain that becomes progressively more severe.
However, acetabular bone loss remains an issue in THA. Special devices, such as a Kerboull-type plate, may be used for acetabular bone defects, but the procedure is highly invasive and often the patients are elderly, further complicating matters.
We retrospectively investigated the clinical and radiographic results of THA using conventional hydroxyapatite-coated cementless cup in RDC.
A total of 32 patients (35 hips) with RDC were enrolled in the study with a minimum 10-year follow-up.
All THAs were performed using conventional hydroxyapatite-coated cementless cup. All patients were evaluated clinically according to the Harris hip score (HHS).
Acetabular bone deficiency was classified according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) classification.
