The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the minimum 10-year outcomes and survivorship of the Reflection shell with a polished inner surface and an improved locking mechanism. Three hundred sixty-three total hip replacements with a mean follow-up of 11.6 years (range, 10.0-15.1) were evaluated. The mean Harris Hip and WOMAC scores at last follow-up were 87 and 77, respectively. Four cups were revised: 2 for infection and 2 for aseptic loosening. Thirteen cases underwent liner exchange for wear. Radiographic review of remaining cups identified 8.8% with identifiable peri-acetabular osteolysis and no cases of loosening. The overall 10- and 15-year Kaplan-Meier survivorship was 94% and 90% for the total hip arthroplasty system while the survivorship of the shell remained 99.4% at 15 years.
