BACKGROUND: Hip resurfacing arthroplasty is a common procedure that improves functional scores and has a reported survivorship between 95% and 98% at 5 years. However, most studies are reported from the pioneering rather than independent centers or have relatively small patient numbers or less than five years followup. Various factors have been implicated in early failure.
QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: Our purposes were to determine: (1) the midterm survival of the BHR; (2) the function in patients treated with hip resurfacing; and (3) whether age, gender, BMI, or size of components related to failure.
METHODS: We reviewed the first 302 patients (329 hips) on whom we performed resurfacing arthroplasty. We assessed the survivorship, change in functional hip scores (HHS, OHS, WOMAC, UCLA), and analyzed potential risk factors (age, gender, BMI, component size) for failure. The mean age at the time of surgery was 56.0 years (range, 28.2-75.5 years). The minimum followup was 5 years (mean, 6.6 years; range, 5-9.2 years).
RESULTS: Kaplan-Meier analysis showed survival of 96.5% (95% CI, 94.7-98.4) at 9 years taking revision for any cause as the endpoint. All functional hip scores (HHS, OHS, WOMAC, UCLA) improved. Survivorship was higher in men compared with women. The component sizes and body mass index were smaller in the revised group compared with the nonrevised group.
CONCLUSIONS: Medium-term survivorship and functional scores of hip resurfacing are comparable to those from the pioneering center. Hip resurfacing remains a good alternative to THA, particularly in the younger male population with relatively large femoral head sizes.
