This study is a retrospective evaluation of the intermediate-term results of 26 consecutive revision total hip arthroplasties performed with a modular titanium, uncemented femoral component. The average patient age at the time of revision total hip arthroplasty was 72 years, and there were an equal number of males and females. The mean follow-up was 5.7 years (ranging from 4 to 11 years). No re-revision was necessary during this follow-up time. The mean Harris hip score improved significantly (preoperative and postoperative score was 50.7 and 89.6, respectively; P < .001). Postoperatively, Short Form 36 functional scores averaged 67.7 across 9 functional parameters. Our observed low revision rate and favorable patient-reported outcome scores support the continuous use of modular titanium, uncemented femoral components in revision total hip arthroplasty.
