We evaluated the survivorship, incidence of complications, radiological subsidence, proximal stress shielding, and patient-reported outcomes of a conservative, monoblock, hydroxyapatite-coated femoral stem. This retrospective cohort study reports on 254 revision hip arthroplasties between January 2006 and June 2016. The mean age of patients was 71 years. The mean length of follow-up was 62 months (range 12-152). There were 13 stem re-revisions: infection (4), periprosthetic fracture (4), aseptic stem loosening (3), stem fracture (1), and extended trochanteric osteotomy nonunion (1). Kaplan-Meier aseptic stem survivorship was 97.33% (confidence interval 94-100) at 6 years. There were 29 intraoperative fractures. There were 6 cases of subsidence greater than 10 mm; however, none required revision. Ninety-six percent of cases showed no proximal stress shielding. Thigh pain was reported in 3% of cases. This study confirms that this stem provides good survivorship at 6 years, acceptable complication rates, adequate proximal bone loading, low incidences of thigh pain, and reliable clinical performance in revision hip arthroplasty. A monoblock, fully hydroxyapatite-coated titanium stem is reliable in revision arthroplasty with mild-moderate femur deficiencies. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
