Abstract

PURPOSE: To assess short- to medium-term outcome of the Omnifit constrained acetabular component in preventing dislocation in at-risk patients after total hip arthroplasty (THA). METHODS: 81 patients (mean age, 77 years) underwent either primary or revision THA with an Omnifit constrained acetabular component and were followed up clinically and radiologically for a mean period of 24 months. RESULTS: There was one dislocation and one revision for avulsion of the acetabulum. The remaining prostheses remained well fixed. CONCLUSIONS: In the short- to medium-term, the Omnifit constrained acetabular component is effective in preventing primary and recurrent dislocation in at-risk patients. Long-term follow-up is needed to assess whether good fixation is maintained. The Omnifit acetabular cup is recommended for elderly patients with limited life expectancy and functional demands.
