This is a relatively new technique that provides a viable option for the treatment of complex severe acetabular defects and pelvic discontinuity . A porous trabecular metal acetabular shell (titanium and tantalum) and a bridging ilioischial cage are used to achieve mechanical construct stability and biologic fixation of the acetabular shell . It was first presented at the 2007 annual meeting of American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons [3, 4].
