Total Hip Replacement in the Dysplastic Hip: The Use of
Cementless Acetabular Components
The aim of this study was to examine the early results of patients with acetabular dysplasia treated with the use of uncemented acetabular components and without complex bony augmentation.
Eleven patients (13 hips) were included in this study. The median acetabular component size was 44mm (range, 44-56mm). The mean follow up period was 24 months (range, 15-59 months). All patients were pain free at follow up.
The mean Merle d’Aubigné Postel score increased from 3 to 17. Our early results suggest that acetabular reconstruction using a small cementless cup, may be an
alternative to previously described methods of total hip arthroplasty in the presence of superolateral bone loss.
