Randomized Trial Comparing Hip Resurfacing and Total Hip Arthroplasty
Two hundred and nine hips were randomized to receive either a 28-mm total hip athroplasty (THA, 100 hips) or hybrid hip resurfacing (HR, 109 hips). At 1 and 2 years post-operatively, patients with HR achieved statistically significantly better WOMAC functional scores. However, differences in scores were of slight clinical relevance with a difference of 2.2/100 and 3.3/100, at 1 and 2 years respectively (p=0.007). After an average follow-up of 56 months (range 36-72) there were similar re-operation rates 7/100 THA and 6/109 HR (p=0.655) and revision rates 2/100 THA and 4/109 HR (p=0.470). However, the types of complications were different. Higher early aseptic loosening rate was found in HR and long-term survival analysis of both patient cohorts is necessary to determine whether the potential bone preservation advantage offers by HR will overcome its earlier higher failure rate.
