Abstract

A post-mortem retrieval program for cemented canine total hip replacements (THR) was developed, to assess the dog as a model for human THR. Thirty-eight hemipelves and femora with implants were retrieved from 29 dogs that were collected at the time of the dog's death. Femoral components that were not grossly loose were mechanically tested to assess implant stability. The entire articulating surface of the canine acetabular component displayed wear and damage, in contrast to human retrievals that usually display wear damage in two quardants.
