It is still challenging to perform successful cementless cup fixation during total hip arthroplasty for hip dysplasia. In this multicenter study we evaluated the clinical results of porous tantalum modular acetabular cups (TM cups) in 45 dysplastic hips with a mean follow-up period of 9.8 years. The mean Japanese Orthopaedic Association hip score improved from 48.2 preoperatively to 92.1 at the most recent follow-up. All of the cups were radiographically stable with no evidence of progressive radiolucencies or osteolysis regardless of bone grafting. Sixteen hips with bone grafts showed the integration of grafted bone without any radiolucencies. There were no revisions of TM cups. The use of TM cups for dysplastic hips provided satisfactory 10-year clinical and radiographic results.
