Outcome of the cementless Taperloc stem: a comprehensive literature review including arthroplasty register data
Gerold Labek, Stefan Frischhut, Rainer Schlichtherle-Pohle, Alexandra Williams & Martin Thaler
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
The cementless Taperloc stem is an implant that shows good performance regarding revision rates in registry data and in clinical studies. However, the excellent results published by the developer's clinic are generally not reproducible by other surgeons. In terms of reference data, registry data are able to make an important contribution to the assessment of clinical sample-based studies, particularly regarding evaluation of the extent to which published results are reproducible in daily routine.
