The results of the first and second groups of 50 consecutive primary, uncemented porous-coated anatomic arthroplasties were analyzed to evaluate the learning curve associated with the procedure. Femoral fit, acetabular cup angle, femoral fracture rate, minimum two-year clinical hip ratings, and clinical symptoms were compared between the two groups. Significant improvement in achieving better femoral canal filling with the prosthesis and lower acetabular cup angle placements was documented in the second 50 cases. Although a definite learning curve in mastering the technique of uncemented total hip arthroplasty was observed, thigh pain rate and clinical ratings were not improved after two years.
