The prevalence of total hip arthroplasty in young patients is small but increasing. We analyzed the results of metal-on-metal hip resurfacing (MMHR) in patients aged 40 years or less. In total 74 operations were performed on 64 patients. Mean age at operation was 33.2 years. HHS averaged 92.3 points at latest follow-up, mean UCLA activity was 8.2. Patients with comorbidity evinced lower scores in HHS, in UCLA activity and in quality of life than patients without comorbidities. Eight revisions (10.8 %) were performed, of which seven due to adverse reaction to metal debris. Seven-year survival was 90.5 %. The functional outcome of hip resurfacing in this cohort was excellent, but overall survival was unsatisfactory. Further analysis is required to verify the role of hip resurfacing among young and active patients.
