Transperitoneal removal of an intrapelvic acetabular component after total hip replacement and salvage of a destroyed acetabulum

Download PDF


Intrapelvic migration of the acetabular component of a total hip replacement, with severe acetabular destruction making reconstruction impossible, is very rare. We present a patient in whom the component was removed using a laparotomy and a transperitoneal approach with subsequent salvage using a saddle prosthesis and a total femoral replacement.
