Aims In case of severe bone loss, acetabular revision can be challenged using extra porous pure trabecular titanium (TT) revision cups designed to ensure enhanced iliac and ischiatic purchase. Aim of the study is to report on the clinical and radiological results of a TT acetabular component, evaluating functional outcome, restoration of the hip center of rotation and osteointegration. Methods 85 patients, who underwent acetabular revision with a TT revision cup system between October 2009 and December 2018, were included in a retrospective study. Clinical outcome were assessed with Harris Hip Score (HHS). The hip rotation center was measured using the Pierchon method on the AP pelvis film. Loosening of the cup was determined according to the Kosashvili modification of Gill's criteria. Kaplan- Meier survivorship curve was performed. Results The mean follow-up was 6.12 years. The average HHS improved from 54.7 points to 89.7 points (p < 0.05). Two acetabular components (2.3%) were re-revised after a mean of 5.6 years, for aseptic loosening and for infection, with a progressive radiolucency and a > 5 mm vertical migration, respectively. The radiographic evaluation of the position of the hip rotation center revealed a statistically significant difference (p < 0.05) between the pre- and post-operative values. The hip rotation center was correctly restored within 5% of the reference Pierchon values in a percentage of 85.4% relative to horizontal parameters and within 8% in a percentage of 66.7% relative to vertical parameters. 5-year and 10-year survivorships were, respectively, 100% and 88%. Conclusions In case of severe bone loss, TT revision cup system allows for good restoration of center of rotation and osteointegration showing good 10-year survival rate.

Abstract

Aims In case of severe bone loss, acetabular revision can be challenged using extra porous pure trabecular titanium (TT) revision cups designed to ensure enhanced iliac and ischiatic purchase. Aim of the study is to report on the clinical and radiological results of a TT acetabular component, evaluating functional outcome, restoration of the hip center of rotation and osteointegration. Methods 85 patients, who underwent acetabular revision with a TT revision cup system between October 2009 and December 2018, were included in a retrospective study. Clinical outcome were assessed with Harris Hip Score (HHS). The hip rotation center was measured using the Pierchon method on the AP pelvis film. Loosening of the cup was determined according to the Kosashvili modification of Gill's criteria. Kaplan- Meier survivorship curve was performed. Results The mean follow-up was 6.12 years. The average HHS improved from 54.7 points to 89.7 points (p < 0.05). Two acetabular components (2.3%) were re-revised after a mean of 5.6 years, for aseptic loosening and for infection, with a progressive radiolucency and a > 5 mm vertical migration, respectively. The radiographic evaluation of the position of the hip rotation center revealed a statistically significant difference (p < 0.05) between the pre- and post-operative values. The hip rotation center was correctly restored within 5% of the reference Pierchon values in a percentage of 85.4% relative to horizontal parameters and within 8% in a percentage of 66.7% relative to vertical parameters. 5-year and 10-year survivorships were, respectively, 100% and 88%. Conclusions In case of severe bone loss, TT revision cup system allows for good restoration of center of rotation and osteointegration showing good 10-year survival rate.
