English term or phrase:non-progressive osteolysis
XXX et al. (Germany) prospectively analysed clinical and radiological results of 75 consecutive unselected primary cementless THA (71 patients) using alumina CoC bearing couples.
Indications were primary and secondary osteoarthritis.
The average age at the time of surgery was 58 (34–77) years.
62 THA in 27 women (30 hips) and 31 men (32 hips) were available for follow-up.
The mean follow-up was 10.5 (10.1–11.4) years.
No failure of ceramic components could be observed.
Ceramic wear was undetectable.
All cups were stable.
In one case a ***non-progressive osteolysis*** was observed around a screw of a cup.
One stem was revised for aseptic loosening.
The authors concluded that the absence of measurable wear and only 1 case of non-progressive osteolysis underline the benefits of CoC bearing couples in comparison to other bearing surfaces.
