Abstract

Introduction: Although a well-known advantage of the cementless fixation technique is that it prevents bone cement implantation syndrome, with lower perioperative mortality, the risk factors associated with dislocation after cementless bipolar hemiarthroplasty (BHA) have not yet been sufficiently investigated. This study aimed to investigate the incidence of dislocation following cementless BHA of the hip in elderly patients with displaced femoral neck fractures. The related risk factors are also examined.
