65 years old lady came with pain in the left hip region with difficulty in bearing weight over left lower limb for the past 2 years, Patient had a history of left-sided cemented THR done elsewhere 5 years back.
Radiographic examination showed radiolucency on the femoral component site with subsidence of stem as compared with previous x-rays thus suggesting of loosening of the implant.
There was no evidence of infection.
We planned for Revision THR, which is an extremely challenging procedure that requires special surgical expertise and special implants. We routinely perform these procedures with good outcomes.
We did revision uncemented THR with the removal of previous prosthesis and cement using extended trochanteric osteotomy.
Post-op x-ray showed well fitted uncemented THR with constrained liner with the wiring of extended trochanteric osteotomy
Now the patient is Walking Comfortably with a walker.
