39 patients with osteoarthritis of the hip were randomized to receive either a resurfacing hip replacement (RHR) or a total hip replacement (THR). Bone mineral density (BMD) of the acetabulum, femoral neck, and proximal femur were measured throughout the course of the study in order to determine which hip replacement method preserves the bone mineral density of the acetabular side. By the end of t...
