Orthopedic surgeons are encountering increasing numbers of patients with aseptic, time-related loosening of total hip arthroplasties. Compounding the problem is the well-documented loss of bone stock associated with prosthetic loosening and wear particles [1–9]. Conventional methods of reconstruction may be inadequate for such situations [10–13]. Even the option of excision arthroplasty may be lost due to severe bone deficiency.
