This study reports revision and complication rates of a single cementless double-wedged tapered stem with an alumina-alumina bearing over 10 years since the beginning of premarket clinical trials. Of 930 hips (848 patients) implanted by 9 surgeons, there were 19 revisions at mean follow-up of 5.9 years compared to 10 revisions in the 123 hips implanted with the polyethylene control group at mean 7.8 years. The ongoing safety of alumina-alumina bearings is demonstrated through excellent (96.8%) survivorship at 10 years. Twenty-one patients reported 23 incidences of noise described as clicking, squeaking, popping, or creaking. Eight patients with 9 hips described the noise as squeaking, most occurring rarely and only 1 occurring frequently in a patient subsequently revised for a reason aside from the squeaking.
