The bone is generally the most valuable material in joint endoprosthetics. The goal is sparing it and preserving it as much as conceivably possible. In the past, special attention has been given to instruments in particular so that bone is more likely to be compacted in the surgical procedure and is not rasped away.
This good experience was developed further in the field of short hip stem endoprosthetics and also allows the surgeon to preserve more bone substance. This is accomplished by severing the femoral neck at a higher position and anchoring the prosthesis in this plane. Providing relevant support in this case is the short and angular design of the prosthesis, which is simultaneously supported cementlessly at several points.
Because bone is preserved, an additional level is achieved for possible revision surgery, because using a standard straight hip stem prosthesis would then be conceivable.
