We report midterm functional, radiographic and survivorship data for the cemented, triple taper C-stem AMT femoral component from a consecutive cohort of 415 hip arthroplasties in 386 patients at a non-developer centre. Follow-up ranges were from 60 to 99 months, with a mean of 76 months. 32 hips were lost to follow-up. The median OHS was 40, median SF-12 mental component score (MCS) was 50, and median SF-12 physical component score (PCS) was 39. At 99 months follow up, stem survivorship is 96.9% (95% confidence interval (CI) 82.5-99.5), and construct survivorship is 96.0% (95% CI 84.2-99.0). Adverse events such as calcar fracture, greater trochanter fracture and dislocation were rare at < 1%. There have been no revisions for aseptic loosening.
