This report represents a 5- to 10-year follow-up of our initial 2- to 5-year data with this proximally hydroxyapatite-coated stem design (Secur-Fit, Stryker Orthopaedics, Mahwah, NJ). This is a retrospective review of a single surgeon's consecutive cases. A total of 105 cases were available for complete review. The average follow-up was 6.7 years (60-123 months). All stems achieved bony ingrowth. Harris hip score and Oxford hip score averaged to 91 and 17, respectively, with no differences seen between the 132 degrees and the 127 degrees stem designs. Leg length measurements were considered equal side-to-side differences of 7 mm or less in 87% of cases: 82% of standard- and 92% of high-offset cases (P < .05). Four cases of osteolysis were identified and occurred only in patients with an elevated rim liner, implicating neck-liner impingement. The stem design performed exceedingly well over the course of this study. Having a high-offset option aids the surgeon in proper leg length management.
