With the improvement of metal-on-metal bearings, hip resurfacing has become a viable option for hip arthroplasty in young patients. It is technically more complicated to gain access to the acetabulum while preserving the femoral head. In some countries, this type of bone-preserving hip arthroplasty is used in a substantial percentage of young patients.

A seven-year follow-up study, J Bone Joint Surg Am 2008; 90 Suppl 3:32-7.

Metal-on-metal hip resurfacing with hybrid fixation has been introduced as an alternative to standard total hip arthroplasty, especially for young and active patients. There are few studies in the literature on the midterm results of cementless femoral side resurfacing. The purpose of this study was to present our seven-year clinical results of a series of twenty cementless metal-on-metal hip resurfacing procedures.
