|BACKGROUND: Patients with skeletal dysplasia are prone to degenerative hip disease thus requiring THA at a younger age than the general population. This is a technically demanding procedure with high complication and revision rates. Achieving good femoral fixation can be challenging because of the abnormal features of the hip.
QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We therefore determined: (1) survivorship, (2) function, (3) radiographic findings, and (4) complications associated with a cementless custom-made femoral component used in THAs for patients with skeletal dysplasia and compared these parameters with those from other types of femoral fixation.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 1992 and 2005, 40 THAs were performed in 25 patients with skeletal dysplasia using custom-made cementless femoral components. There were 15 men and 10 women with a mean age of 37.5 years (range, 18-61 years) and a mean height of 145 cm (range, 120-173 cm). Patients were followed clinically and radiographically for a minimum of 4.3 years (mean, 10.1 years; range, 4.3-18.2 years).
RESULTS: The survivorship rates for the femoral and acetabular components were 92% and 70%, respectively, at 220 months. Revision arthroplasty was performed in four of 40 hips (10%). In two, the acetabular component was revised for aseptic loosening, one had both components revised for aseptic loosening, and one had an isolated femoral component revision for deep infection. The mean Harris hip score improved from 41 (range, 27-57) preoperatively to 80 (range, 51-94) at final followup. There were two intraoperative proximal femoral fractures and one dislocation.
CONCLUSIONS: When compared with studies with equal followup, custom-made cementless components in THAs for patients with skeletal dysplasia apparently had lower revision and complication rates with comparable function and higher midterm survival.
