PMF therapy was performed in more than 1000 patients with loosened artificial hip joints. 334 patients with 348 arthroplasties were treated within a controlled study. In more than 65% of the patients further surgery could be avoided within a follow-up of 10 years. Normally the treatment takes 16 weeks. Indications must be limited to patients at an early stage of aseptic loosening. © 1985.
