abstract

  • Even though at present femoral component fracture is a rare complication of total hip replacement, conditions still exist that predispose the prosthesis to failure. Component failure should be considered when a patient presents with pain in a previously asymptomatic hip, particularly in complex dysplastic hips requiring small stems, trochanteric osteotomy, and compromised cement technique.
