There is still debate over the limits of age and bone stock quality of patients on whom to use an un-cemented straight stem coated with hydroxyapatite (HA). We studied a group of 244 patients with a displaced intracapsular fracture of the femoral neck who underwent cementless hemiarthroplasty or total hip arthroplasty. 143 patients were reviewed at the two-year follow up. A fully HA-coated stem for intracapsular hip fracture results in a satisfactory return to pre-injury mobility and a low complications rate. The advantage reported in the literature of a low mortality rate with use of an un-cemented implant in elderly patients was shown to be greater still on finding an immediate primary stability and rapid osteointegration of the implant.
