Sports Activity Following Cementless Metaphyseal Hip Joint Arthroplasty

prostheses are also termed anatomical, as the major part of the proximal end of the femur is maintained and, if properly fixed, allows for full replication of the anatomical relations in the hip joint. This solution offers patients the opportunities for the return to good health status and quality of life following hip joint arthroplasty. The aim of the study was to evaluate function and physical activity of people following hip joint arthroplasty in the observation of at least five years using cementless metaphyseal hip joint arthroplasty.
