About this book


This book reviews the most important issues related to acetabular revision hip surgery and assesses the different management procedures that are currently used in light of the challenging major defects. Since the 1970s there has been a continual rise in the annual number of total hip arthroplasty (THA) procedures which has increased the demand for revision surgeries. Most revisions operations of the hip are the result of acetabular problems and early failures are usually related to acetabular bone defects in complex primary THAs.  Long-term failures are mostly due to wear debris and osteolysis-related problems and both types of complications are presented throughout the book. Surgeons with a special interest in hip reconstruction surgery will find this book to be an essential resource for  successfully dealing with highly complex revision procedures.
