We present the early results of 142 uncemented femoral stem revisions using the modular MRP-Titan system. There were 70 cases with marked preoperative femoral bone defects (Paprosky type 2C and type 3); and bone grafts were used in 31 cases. At a mean follow-up of 2.3 years five cases were re-revised due to dislocation and two due to aseptic loosening. The mean Harris hip score improved from 37.4 preoperatively to 92.4. In 122 cases progressive bone regeneration on X-ray was seen; and no further osteolysis was observed.
