Primary Outcome Measures:
  • short term bone remodeling [ Time Frame: 6 times within 2 years ]
    Bone remodeling is determined by measuring the Bone mineral density during time

  • complications and reoperations [ Time Frame: during 5 years ]
    Reporting all complications and reoperations of the two different hip prostheses


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • clinical performance [ Time Frame: 9 times within 5 years ]
    Comparison of the clinical performance of the two different hip prostheses

  • Radiological evaluation [ Time Frame: 9 times within 5 years ]
    Evaluation of Xrays according to the engh classifications


Other Outcome Measures:
  • patient satisfaction [ Time Frame: 9 times within 5 years ]
    comparison of patient satisfaction between the two different prostheses


Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: April 2003
Study Completion Date: July 2009
Primary Completion Date: July 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: HA-Omnifit
Patients who receive a HA-Omnifit uncemented hip stem
Procedure: uncemented total hip arthroplasty
Active Comparator: Symax hip stem
Patients with the Symax uncemented hip stem
Procedure: uncemented total hip arthroplasty

Detailed Description:

It is of great importance for the function of uncemented total hip arthroplasty that the anchorage of the prosthesis in the bone of the femur is sufficient. This is of great importance in the prevention of stress shielding of the bone and to insure tranfer of forces from the prosthesis to the femur.

The symax hip stem is developed to optimize stress tranfer to bone and insure mechanical stability.

In this study the symax hip stem is compared to the HA_Omnifit hip stem (a frequently used and long term evaluated uncemented hip prosthesis) During the fist two years of follow up DEXA mesurments of bone mineral density are performed. Also patient satisfaction, patient fuction score and radiological evaluation measurements are done during 5 years of follow up.

Our primary objective is: comparison of the short term bone remodelling surrounding the Symax hip stem to the short term remodeling surrounding the Stryker Omnifit HA hip stem measured by bone densitometry, clinical and radiographic evaluation.
