17 patients scheduled for primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) were randomized to two types of cementless monobloc acetabular components: one group had an implant made of monobloc titanium and another with porous tantalum implant. The study aimed to compare the effects of both implants on adjacent bone mineral density loss (BMD). At a 7.7 year mean follow up, the patient group with porous tantalum...
