Özet

There are still some controversial issues regarding total hip arthroplasty including cemented vs. cementless, short stem vs. long stem. A literature review on the currently published survival results of short stems is encouraging and appears to be comparable with that of traditional uncemented stems. However, only few midterm and long-term follow-up studies are available; studies with more patients and longer follow-up periods are needed.
