The Exeter THA system, introduced in the early 1970s, has been modified into a modular design with a matt finish and a stronger stem. We reviewed our results in 61 hips implanted in 60 patients at an average 3.3 years after implantation. One patient died and no patient needed revision; the remaining 60 hips were examined clinically and radiographically. There were 33 excellent, 18 good and 9 fair results using our modified criteria for examination. All fair results were in either polyarticular rheumatoid cases or in elderly people after trochanteric fractures. Radiological deficiency of cement was detected at the distal stem in 4 cases; this was due to defective cement pressurization and was not seen in the later cases after technique modification. In our short term experience, the Exeter modular hip is a good implant for Indian patients.
