Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Harris Hip Score [ Time Frame: 10 Years Post-Operative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Harris Hip Score is detailed below as a range. 100 being the highest score, and 0 being the lowest score. 90-100 is considered "Excellent." 80-89 is considered "Good." 70-79 is considered "Fair." Less than 70 is considered "Poor."


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Harris Hip Score Pain [ Time Frame: Pre-Operative, 6 months, 1 year, 2 year, 4 year, 6 year, 8 year, 10 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Harris Hip Score Pain is detailed below as mean score for the Harris Hip Score Pain question. 44 being the highest score, and 0 being the lowest score. 44 is considered "None/Ignores." 40 is considered "Slight/Occasional." 30 is considered "Mild." 20 is considered "Moderate." 10 is considered "Marked." 0 is considered "Totally Disabled."

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to document the clinical outcomes of several devices used in total hip replacement, including the Answer® hip stem, the Ranawat/Burnstein® acetabular shell, and Simplex® or Palacos® bone cement. It was desirable to see if there were any differences in the outcomes of two different types of bone cement in application.
