Paper Title:
Hydroxyapatite Hip Arthroplasty in Osteoporotic Bone: A Study in Female Patients Over the Age of Sixty
  Abstract

Uncemented hip arthroplasty is gaining interest. However, it is alleged that uncemented hip implants fail in osteoporotic bone because of early loosening and a higher incidence of periprosthetic fractures. Will Hydroxyapatite Ceramic Coated Hips (HAC) bond on to the osteoporotic bone and continue to function well in this vulnerable group of patients? Post-menopausal women are prone to develop osteoporosis. They are seen too frequently with wrist, hip and spinal crush fractures following minor low impact injuries. These ladies also contribute to the cohort of patents requiring hip arthroplasty for all the usual diagnoses including sub capital fractures. This is a study of HAC hip arthroplasty in female patients over the age of sixty which includes women with osteoporosis.
