The purpose of this study is to monitor the performance and compare the metal ion release of two bearing combinations, ceramic-on-metal and metal-on-metal in the treatment of patients with hip joint disease requiring a total hip replacement. Patients who enter the study will be randomly allocated to one of the bearing combinations and will be evaluated at regular intervals using, patient, clinical and x-ray assessments. Patients will also have blood samples taken at regular intervals to allow the metal ion levels to be determined.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

The objective of this study is to gather clinical and survivorship information for the C2a-Taper™ Acetabular System, a ceramic on ceramic hip articulating system.
Secondary hip osteoarthritis after acetabular fractures requiring total arthroplasty (THA) poses a huge burden on the affected patients as well as health systems. The present study aimed to assess ris...
Acetabular reconstruction aims at filling bony defects and positioning the acetabular component in its anatomical place. To this, the use of Kerboull plate would give an automatic optimal positioning ...
A breach of the medial acetabular wall is a phenomenon seen frequently due to over-reaming during total hip arthroplasty (THA). The consequences of this issue are not fully understood particularly in ...
Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) in osteoporotic acetabular fractures is quite difficult with high risk of implant failure. Total hip arthroplasty (THA) may be an effective option for treat...
Acetabular cup orientation, consisting of pelvic positioning, version and inclination, can influence short-term and long-term results after total hip arthroplasty (THA). The radiographic measurement o...
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.
Congenital dislocation of the hip generally includes subluxation of the femoral head, acetabular dysplasia, and complete dislocation of the femoral head from the true acetabulum. This condition occurs in approximately 1 in 1000 live births and is more common in females than in males.
The joining of objects by means of a cement (e.g., in fracture fixation, such as in hip arthroplasty for joining of the acetabular component to the femoral component). In dentistry, it is used for the process of attaching parts of a tooth or restorative material to a natural tooth or for the attaching of orthodontic bands to teeth by means of an adhesive.
A group of enzymatic disorders affecting the nervous system and to a variable degree the skeletal system, lymphoreticular system, and other organs. The conditions are marked by an abnormal accumulation of catabolic material within lysosomes.
The system of glands that release their secretions (hormones) directly into the circulatory system. In addition to the ENDOCRINE GLANDS, included are the CHROMAFFIN SYSTEM and the NEUROSECRETORY SYSTEMS.
