Composite-beam and sliding-taper prostheses show no difference in femoral bone loss
Effect of sliding-taper compared with composite-beam cemented femoral prosthesis loading regime on proximal femoral bone remodeling: a randomized clinical trialJ Bone Joint Surg Am. 2013 Jan 2;95(1):19-27. doi: 10.2106/JBJS.K.00657

120 patients were randomized to evaluate whether the geometry of the cemented femoral prosthesis affected the pattern of strain-adaptive bone remodelling in the proximal aspect of the femur following total hip arthroplasty (THA). Patients received either composite-beam or sliding-taper (double and triple-tapered) prostheses and were assessed at 2 years. Results indicated that the magnitude and reg...
