Does the design of the hip hemiprosthesis affect the risk of stem loosening?

Nikolay Kolarov, Ivaylo Mitkovski


Femoral neck fracture in adult patients accounts for 15%-25% of all patients with locomotor injuries admitted for hospital treatment. As the age progresses, the number of these traumas increases. There is still no reliable universal criterion for choosing a therapeutic method for internal femoral tears. The article presents comparative results for hip prosthesis wear. The survey was conducted for the period 2011-2015 in the Orthopedics and Traumatology Clinic at St. Anna University Hospital, Varna.
