Primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) is an invaluable surgical procedure that has revolutionised the treatment of various end-stage hip pathologies. Aseptic loosening of either acetabular cup and/or femoral stem as well as components' dislocation are well-known post-operative complications due to so many factors: environmental, surgeon, patient related, disease related or implant design. The aim of this literature review is to look at some relevant implant designs that might influence acetabular and femoral components' survival for primary cementless THA using revision for aseptic loosening and dislocation as criteria for failure. This may also assist the surgeon in making an informed choice of using appropriate implants to match the demographic and disease-specific need of the patients undergoing the surgical procedure. This review article was performed using an online literature search on relevant publications.
