A general, across-the-board recommendation for a specific implant and how it should be anchored cannot be made.It depends on many factors such as the following, among others:
The personal situation must be discussed in detail with the treating physician. For the most part, it is possible to make a good evaluation of the condition of the bone and the anatomy on the basis of x-rays.
In order to achieve good bone ingrowth of a short hip stem prosthesis and thereby achieve a long-lasting replacement, the following parameters based on experience gathered so far have proven to be of special significance.
Good quality bone is especially important for obtaining good anchorage of the prosthesis. Young patients in particular are more likely to meet this requirement.
No previous surgery
With some clinical patterns, surgery may already have been performed, like the placement of screws or plates. The implanted screws or implant channels can weaken the bone substance after removal. In this case, implants that are anchored more deeply are more likely to be beneficial.
