    Introduction: To demonstrate the physiological mechanical forces on the medial and lateral femoral cortices in Total Hip Replacement (THR), the cementless “lateral flare” femoral stem has been developed, established, and clinically validated at our institution. The mid-term outcomes had been reported, and therefore, the long-term outcomes of this femoral stem were evaluated in this study. Patients and methods: A total of 62 hips in 58 consecutive patients, which had been previously reported, were investigated by physical examinations, radiographic evaluations and telephone interviews. Results: There were 49 hips in 45 patients (79.0%) available for long-term follow-up. of the 49 hips; the mean duration of follow-up period was 15.8 ± 1.5 years (10.1-17.9 years).
