One hundred and twelve primary cemented Exeter total hip replacement (Howmedica, Hong Kong) were performed in 101 Chinese patients. The prosthesis has a collar-less, double-tapered, polished stem. Seventy-five hips in 68 patients were available for assessment. The average age at operation was 63.7 years and the most common diagnosis was avascular necrosis. The average follow-up duration was 10 years 3 months (range, 7 years 6 months to 14.0 years). The Harris score improved from an average of 39.8 preoperatively to 83.8 at the last follow-up visit. Stem subsidence within the cement mantle occurred in 9.3% of cases with no other evidence of loosening. Eight hips in seven patients were revised after 5.0 to 14.0 years because of loosening. The 10-year survival rate was 93.3%. Oversizing of the stem and incomplete cement mantle might account for loosening. Stems of a smaller size have been made available to this population and it is hoped that this will improve results. (Hong Kong j. orthop. surg. 2001;5(1):2-10)

中國患者骨水泥固定的Exeter全髖關節置換術 - 十年隨訪報告


一零一位中國病者的112髖關節接受骨水泥固定的Exeter全髖關節置換術。我們使用冇頸圈及兩側漸變細的磨光支干。此研究對68位病者的75個髖關節進行了術後檢查。病者平均年齡是63.7歲,最常見的診斷是股骨頭缺血性壞死。隨訪時間為7.5至 14.0 年,平均隨訪時間10.3年。 Harris 得分從術前的平均39.8分改善到最後一次隨訪的83.8分。支干在骨水泥覆蓋中下沉率為9.3%,但沒有發現支干鬆脫。7位病人的八個髖關節因術後5 至 14 年鬆脫,需要手術翻修。十年生存率為93.3%。支干尺寸過大及不完整的骨水泥覆蓋可能是鬆脫的成因。中國病者可以用較小的支干尺寸,希望這可以改善將來的手術效果。
