Six porous-coated, uncemented femoral components were revised at a mean of 34.5 months for persistent thigh pain. At operation the stems were rigidly stable, difficult to extract, and showed good bony ingrowth. The four men and two women, with an average age of 59 years, all had thigh pain starting within the first year, progressive over time and unresponsive to conservative measures. These cases show that rigid fixation with good bony ingrowth does not guarantee the clinical success of a porous-coated uncemented femoral stem.
