One hundred and forty-nine hips (125 patients) underwent cementless Harris-Galante primary total hip arthroplasty from September 1987 to June 1990 at the Taichung Veterans General Hospital. Seventy hips (61 patients) have been followed up for at least 2 years (range, 26-55 months, mean 36 months). The primary diagnoses included osteoarthritis (42.9%) and avascular necrosis (57.1%). All the hips were evaluated using Harris hip score and Mayo Clinic hip score. The average Harris hip score was 36.5 points (23-73) preoperatively, and 95 points (80-100) postoperatively. When evaluated by the Harris hip score, 94.3% were excellent, and 5.7% had good results; and 90% were excellent, 10% had good results when evaluated by Mayo Clinic hip score. No fair or poor results were noted by either evaluating system. Fifty-seven femoral components (81.4%) appeared to have stable bone ingrowth fixation, ten components (14.3%) had stable fibrous ingrowth, and three (4.3%) were unstable. Fifty-five hips (78.6%) showed radiolucent lines around the femoral component in follow-up roentgenogram; most were at the non-porous, fiber-mesh part. It seemed that there was no correlation between these radiolucent lines and clinical outcome, according to this short-term study.
