Femoral Prothesis Neck Fracture
Fracture of the femoral prosthesis neck following total hip arthroplasty is not common. We report a case of femoral prosthesis neck fracture in an adult male patient following modular, uncemented total hip arthroplasty.
On the other hand, the occurrence of a femoral prosthesis neck fracture in a cementless system denotes a well fixed distal stem and calls for a difficult revision procedure usually requiring an extended trochanteric osteotomy forstem retrieval.
