Aim of the present study was to evaluate migration rates of cementless primary hemiarthroplasty in acute femoral neck fractures. In a longitudinal, prospective study 46 patients were treated by cementless hemiarthroplasty. Clinical follow up was correlated with the EBRA-FCA method. In 30% of all patients stem migration amounted to more than 2 mm; further, these patients were seen to have a high level of activity. A high degree of migration in more than 30% of all patients requires critical scepticism toward further use of the investigated cementless stem as hemiarthroplasty. According to literature, migration of more than 2 mm suggests a high probability of early aseptic loosening. In patients with a low degree of activity good results could be observed; nevertheless, in patients with a high level of activity the combination of the investigated cementless stem with a solid fracture head cannot be recommended.
