We describe our experience with the implantation of 325 Exeter Universal hips. The fate of every implant was known. The procedures were undertaken by surgeons of widely differing experience. At follow-up at 12 years, survivorship with revision of the femoral component for aseptic loosening as the endpoint was 100% (95% CI 98 to 100). Survivorship with revision of the acetabular component for aseptic loosening as the endpoint was 96.86% (95% CI 93.1 to 98.9) and that with any reoperation as the endpoint 91.74% (95% CI 87.7 to 95.8). No adverse features have emerged as a consequence of the modular connection between the head and neck of the implant.
