Between 1965 and 1973 a total of 808 McKee-Farrar metal-on-metal cemented total hip arthroplasties were performed in the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital. Of these, 230 surviving arthroplasties have been reviewed at average follow-up of 13.9 years. There were good or excellent results in 49% of the arthroplasties as judged by the Harris hip score with 78% of these having little or no pain. A comprehensive radiographic analysis was undertaken and a survivorship study of 81% of the total number of prostheses is presented.

Mechanical abnormalities of the patellofemoral joint are among the many causes that have been suggested for adolescent knee pain. This study seeks to identify these factors. Measurements of joint mobility and lower limb morphology were made on 446 pupils at a comprehensive school, 136 of whom had suffered knee pain in the previous year. The pupils with symptoms enjoyed sporting activities significantly more than their symptom-free contemporaries. Joint mobility, the Q-angle, genu valgum and anteversion of the femoral neck were not significantly different between those pupils with and those without anterior knee pain. Data on lower limb morphology of normal adolescents are presented. Examination of 52 hospital outpatients aged 13 to 36 years with anterior knee pain produced results comparable with those for the pupils. It is concluded that chronic overloading, rather than faulty mechanics, is the dominant factor in the genesis of anterior knee pain in adolescent patients.
