abstract

  • Multiple specialized exposures have been described for revision total hip arthroplasty. In this article, we report on a series of 7 patients who underwent major isolated acetabular revision surgery through a modified iliofemoral approach. The use of this approach was deemed desirable because of the individual pathology present in each case, particularly major acetabular bone loss (Paprosky 2C/3B). However, successful reconstruction was achieved in all cases with the most frequent complication being meralgia paresthetica.
