The purpose of this study was to perform an objective clinical and radiological assessment of the thrust plate prosthesis (TPP). Fifty-three prostheses were evaluated clinically using the Harris hip score (HHS), visual analog scale (VAS), and radiographically before surgery, at the time of discharge, and postoperatively after on average of 8.09 (range 4.61-9.93) years. The average HHS significantly (p < or = 0.05) improved from 48 (range 18-77) points to 95 (range 46-100) points. The VAS revealed significant (p < or = 0.05) reduction of pain at rest and under load. Radiographic analysis showed a considerable potential for osteolysis under the thrust plate. Sixteen prostheses revealed signs of radiolucent zones. In general, there was a good clinical outcome with no major limitations in function. Radiographic changes under the thrust plate indicate an adaptation processes resulting from changed biomechanics. This study suggests that the TPP could be a good alternative in total hip replacement in younger patients.
