Hip resurfacing has recently been offered as an attractive alternative to conventional total hip arthroplasty. This report evaluated the short-term functional outcome and longevity of a newer generation resurfacing device and includes the results of 228 consecutive hip resurfacing in 209 patients at a minimum of two-year follow-up. All resurfacing were performed by a single surgeon using a posterior approach. Excluding infections, there were only three failures (1.3%). The overall survival at 4.6 years was 96.9%. The survival of resurfacing in this study was comparable to that of other published studies of hip resurfacing. Surface hip arthroplasty appears to be an effective alternative to conventional total hip arthroplasty in patients suffering from osteoarthritis.
