Abstract

Using a titanium alloy femoral prosthesis (STH Zimmer) and an ultra high molecular weight polyethylene acetabular cup with a posterior surgical approach to the hip joint, 237 consecutive total hip arthroplasties in 215 patients were performed between December 1975 and May 1977. The preliminary results and early postoperative complications suggest that this system can be considered an alternative to total hip arthroplasty using other materials and surgical approaches.
