Stress-related femoral cortical and cancellous bone density loss after collum femoris preserving uncemented total hip arthroplasty: a prospective 7-year follow-up with quantitative computed tomography.
Proximal cortical and cancellous bone density loss and decrease of contact area indicate that metaphyseal fixation cannot be achieved. The lack of cortical BD loss and increase of contact area values below the trochanter minor suggest diaphyseal fixation.
