Primary Outcome Measures:
  • hip function score [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    at the last clinical visit (1 year) the patient will perform hip score testing and record.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • x-ray, surgical outcome [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    in the last clincial visit x ray finding will be record and the overall surgical outcome (infection, bleeding etc.) will be record

Study Start Date: November 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
