Results from Dewsbury District Hospital
We reviewed 586 consecutive cementless primary THA using the JRI-Furlong HAC coated femoral and acetabular components in 542 patients, with a minimum 12-year follow-up to 18 years. Overall survival at 12 years with removal or repeat revision of either component for any reason as the end point was 97.2%. The results of this study support the continued use of a fully-coated prosthesis and documents the durability of the HAC – coated components. In our clinical experience, the Furlong prosthesis revealed encouraging radiographic stability over a long-term period with excellent clinical results.
