Short-Stem Hip Arthroplasty as a Solution for limited Proximal Femoral Bone Stock
Keywords:hip surgery, short seem prosthesis, hip arthroplasty
AbstractWe 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.
