A radiographic analysis of 483 Charnley total hip arthroplasties performed from July 1970 to November 1975 demonstrated that 13% of the hips had lysis of the medial femoral neck. The findings suggest that the lysis of the medial femoral neck is significantly reduced if the femoral stem is oriented in a valgus or neutral position and with at least 5 mm of cement separating the stem of the prosthesis and the medial cortex of the femoral neck.
