Abstract

Today, an increasing number of total hip arthroplasty (THA) procedures are being performed. Osseointegration is a physiological phenomenon that leads to the direct anchorage of an implant by the formation of bony tissue around the implant without the growth of fibrous tissue at the bone-implant interface. Several factors may affect this phenomenon: some of these depend on the patient and others may depend on implant design and materials. Variations in periprosthetic bone mineral density (BMD) can be studied through several scans by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) around the femoral stem.
