Abstract
Nineteen patients with juvenile chronic arthritis underwent 29 resurfa cing hip arthroplasties. In 22 the original all-plastic Wagner acetabu lar component was used and in 7 the metal-backed Wagner-Tillmann compo nent. After a mean of 11 (range 8-13) years 19 of the Wagner acetabula r components had been revised and another 2 showed radiographic loosen ing. After a mean of 7 (range 5-9) years no metal-backed acetabular cu p had been revised and only 1 was definitely loose.
