Mean follow up was 10 yrs. Mean Harris and Oxford scores were 82 and 48.4. Mean linear polyethylene wear was 0.05mm per year. The mean subsidence was 1.6mm. 3 hips were re- revised. EQ5D description and health scores were 0.69 and 79 (p > 0.05).

Overall survival at 12 years with removal or repeat revision of either component for any reason as the end point was 93% [95% CI2.3]
