Restoring femoral offset during total hip arthroplasty is important. Femoral offset and leg lengths are inextricably linked by the caput-collum-diaphysis (CCD) angle of the implant being used. We investigate the restoration of offset and leg lengths using the radiographs of a consecutive series of patients following implantation with either a high CCD angled cementless, or an anatomical CCD angled cemented femoral component. Although our data suggests that we are able to restore femoral offset and leg lengths using either device, we recommend additional caution when using non-anatomical high CCD angled implants.
