MicroPort Orthopedics (MPO) is conducting this post market clinical follow-up (PMCF) study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of its total hip arthroplasty (THA) components marketed in the European Union (EU). These types of studies are required by regulatory authorities for all THA devices that do not have medium to long-term clinical evidence available at the time of gaining approval to market in Europe. This study has been designed in accordance with the medial device directives (MEDDEV) 2.12/2 rev 2.

Disease involving the femoral nerve. The femoral nerve may be injured by ISCHEMIA (e.g., in association with DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES), nerve compression, trauma, COLLAGEN DISEASES, and other disease processes. Clinical features include MUSCLE WEAKNESS or PARALYSIS of hip flexion and knee extension, ATROPHY of the QUADRICEPS MUSCLE, reduced or absent patellar reflex, and impaired sensation over the anterior and medial thigh.
Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the hip joint which usually appears in late middle or old age. It is characterized by growth or maturational disturbances in the femoral neck and head, as well as acetabular dysplasia. A dominant symptom is pain on weight-bearing or motion.
