We present the extended follow-up (≥ 20 years) of a series of fully hydroxyapatite-coated femoral components used in 72 primary total hip replacements (THRs). Earlier results of this cohort have been previously published. All procedures were performed between 1986 and 1991. The series involved 45 women and 15 men with 12 bilateral procedures. Their mean age at the time of surgery was 60 years (46 to 80) and the mean duration of follow-up was 22.5 years (20 to 25). At final follow-up, the mean Merle d’Aubigné and Postel hip scores were 5.5 (4.5 to 6), 3.8 (3.5 to 5) and 3.3 (3.0 to 5.0) for pain, mobility and function, respectively. Of the patients 92% were very satisfied at the time of final follow-up.

There were seven revisions: six of the acetabular component for aseptic loosening and one of both the stem and the acetabular component for loosening due to deep infection. The survival of this prosthesis at 22.5 years with revision for any reason as the endpoint was 91.7% (95% confidence interval (CI) 84 to 99). Survival with aseptic loosening of the stem as the endpoint was 100% (95% CI 90 to 100).

This prosthesis provides pain relief in the long term. Survival of this component is comparable to the best results for primary THR with any means of fixation.

The British Orthopaedic Association has endorsed a website, www.orthoconsent.com, allowing surgeons free access to a bank of pre-written consent forms. These are designed to improve the level of information received by the patient and lessen the risk of successful litigation against surgeons and Health Trusts.

Between 1986 and 1991 we implanted 331 consecutive Furlong hydroxyapatite-coated femoral components of a total hip replacement in 291 patients. A cemented acetabular prosthesis was used in 217 hips and a hydroxyapatite-coated component in 114. We describe the long-term clinical and radiological survival of the femoral component at a mean follow-up of 17.5 years (15 to 21). Only two patients (0.68%) were lost to follow-up. With revision of the femoral component for any reason as the endpoint, the survival at a mean of 17 years was 97.4% (95% confidence interval 94.1 to 99.5), and with revision for aseptic loosening as the endpoint it was 100%. The survival at a maximum of 21 years with revision of the femoral component for any reason as the endpoint was 97.4% (95% confidence interval 81.0 or 99.5). These results compare favourably with the best long-term results of cemented or uncemented femoral components used in total hip replacement.

We report the clinical and radiographic outcome of a consecutive series of 138 hydroxyapatite-coated total knee replacements with a mean follow-up of 11 years (10 to 13). The patients were entered into a prospective study and all living patients (76 knees) were evaluated. The Hospital for Special Surgery knee score was obtained for comparison with the pre-operative situation. No patient was lost to follow-up. Radiographic assessment revealed no loosening. Seven prostheses have been revised, giving a cumulative survival rate of 93% at 13 years. We believe this to be the longest follow-up report available for an hydroxyapatite-coated knee replacement and the first for this design of Insall-Burstein II knee.

We describe the clinical and radiological outcome of 100 consecutive total hip replacements in 86 patients using the JRI Furlong hydroxyapatite-coated femoral component. The follow-up was 100% at a mean of ten years (9.0 to 12.0). All 54 living patients (62 hips) were examined annually. Their mean Merle d’Aubigné score was 5.8/5.6/4.6. A total of 32 patients had died. Their notes at the last annual assessment recorded a similar outcome to that of the living patients. Radiographs showed no radiolucent lines around any femoral component and there were no signs of impending failure. One patient required excision arthroplasty, but the femoral component had been bonded satisfactorily. There have been no other revisions of femoral components. Our findings suggest that the hydroxyapatite coating gives a satisfactory prosthesis-bone interface which is preferable to any other system.
