We present the clinical results and survivorship of consecutive 100 Birmingham Hip Resurfacings in 90 patients at a minimum follow-up of ten years. All procedures were carried out by an independent surgeon who commenced a prospective study in 1998. Patients were assessed clinically using the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities osteoarthritis index, Short-Form 36, Harris hip score and University of California, Los Angeles activity score. Radiological analysis was performed by an independent observer and blood metal ion levels concentrations were measured at ten years post-operatively in 62 patients. The median acetabular component inclination was 46.2° (34° to 59°) and anteversion 11.0° (0° to 30°). The median chromium concentration in the unilateral group was 1.74 (0.41 to 15.23) and for the bilateral group was 2.98 (1.57 to 18.01). The equivalent values for cobalt were 1.67 (0.54 to 20.4) and 1.88 (1.38 to 19.32). In total there were eight failures giving an overall survival at ten years of 92% (95% confidence interval (CI) 86.7 to 97.3). BHR in male patients had an improved survivorship of 94.6% (95% CI 89.4 to 100) compared with females at 84.6% (95% CI 70.7 to 98.5), but this did not reach statistical significance (p = 0.119). Four of the nine BHRs with a bearing diameter of 42 mm failed. The overall results were consistent with data produced from other centres in that the clinical outcome of large male patients was extremely encouraging, whereas the survival of the smaller joints was less satisfactory.
