Woon RP1, Johnson AJ, Amstutz HC. Degenerative hip conditions most commonly affect older patients. However, many cases occur in younger patients… however, hip resurfacing is a viable option. Fifty-three metal-on-metal resurfacings in 46 patients under age 30 were performed. Patients had a variety of etiologies, and were followed clinically and radiographically with mean follow-up of 98.2 months. Clinical scores and x-rays were compared pre-operatively and post-operatively… There were 6 revisions. The Kaplan-Meier survivorship estimate at 8 years was 95%. Metal-on-metal hip resurfacing appears to be an effective procedure for younger patients.
