Abstract The purpose of the present study was to report the clinical and radiographic results of an independent series of the Conserve Plus hip resurfacing. Five hundred forty-eight consecutive hip resurfacings were performed using the Conserve Plus prosthesis in 458 patients (350 males) with a mean age of 48.3years (range 19 to 66). No patients were lost to follow-up. At a mean follow-up of 6.6years (3.9 to 11.9) thirty (5.4%) hips required conversion to a total hip arthroplasty (THA) (20 males, 10 females, mean age=48.3±7.3years). Five-year survival with as revision endpoint was 94.5% (95% CI: 93.5% to 95.5%). This study confirms the good clinical results previously reported with the Conserve Plus hip resurfacing device.
