Abstract

We describe an uncommon scenario where the femoral diaphysis was subjugated by previous long stemmed revision knee replacements limiting options for primary hip arthroplasty. A  short stemmed pressfit femoral componet was implanted bilaterally. At 11 years the implants remain stable with improved clinical function. This case emphasizes the importance of preoperative templating and  the utility of considering the use of unconventional stems in the management of unusual situations.
