PURPOSE: There is little evidence to support immediate weight bearing after uncemented total hip arthroplasty (THA).
METHODS: Thirty-seven patients with unilateral osteoarthritis of the hip received a press-fit cup. Cup stability was assessed with radiostereometry (RSA) over five years. Patients were randomised to immediate full weight bearing, or partial weight bearing for three months.
RESULTS: At five years, we found no difference in micro-motion as assessed with radiostereometry. Numerically, there was more proximal translation and increased inclination with immediate weight bearing, but these values barely exceeded the precision limit for the method. Pooled data for the two groups revealed translations of 0.1-0.3 mm and rotations of 0.2-0.3° over the five year follow-up period.
CONCLUSIONS: We found no adverse effects of immediate weight bearing after THA in relation to stability of these press-fit cups. Early mobilisation might have other advantages.
