Additional Information

Official title A Prospective, Non-controlled, Clinical Investigation of ArComXL® Polyethylene in Total Hip Replacement
Description Approximately 500 patients (cases) will be enrolled in this data collection effort and 10-year follow-up will be attempted. Follow-up will be obtained by sending a questionnaire directly to the patients by mail. The follow-up will be annually and only survivorship data will be collected. This data collection project was developed in order to determine the actual long-term (10-year) survival rate of Biomet's ArCom XL highly cross-linked polyethylene. Data will be collated for uncemented cases only. This will eliminate the possibility of cement or cement debris being a confounding variable. The data gathered will be collated and used to provide feedback to designing engineers, support marketing efforts, and answer potential questions from reimbursement agencies.
