Abstract

IntroductionSuitable treatment of early failure of total hip replacement is critical in younger patients, as bone stock is lost and the functional outcome is impaired.

Case presentationWe report the case of a 56-year-old Caucasian woman with early failure of hip resurfacing arthroplasty. While revision is usually performed with a conventional hip implant, this case report describes for the first time a revision procedure with a bone-conserving short-stem hip implant.

ConclusionsOur approach allows further conservation of femoral bone stock and provides a long-term solution to the patient, which maintains the possibility of using a conventional hip implant should a second revision become necessary.
