We retrospectively evaluated the results of 61 patients (67 hips) who underwent total hip arthroplasty using the thrust plate prosthesis (TPP) for osteoarthritis of the hip joint. All patients were followed-up at least two years (mean: 37.2 months). Mean preoperative Harris hip score improved from 45.8 (SD: 13.5) to 94.9 (SD: 5.4) points postoperatively. Revision was performed in five cases. Medium-term results of TPP are promising.
