Hip resurfacing with retention of existing hardware - case report.
Despite operative reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), many patients who sustain proximal femur fractures develop posttraumatic arthritis. Conventional total hip arthroplasty (THA)in the setting of altered femoral morphology and retained hardware can be quite challenging. Hip resurfacing can provide a favorable option. The present report describes three patients in whom the use of resurfacing precluded the need for hardware removal and provided excellent pain relief.
