Recurrent dislocation secondary to posterior soft tissue deficiency is a challenging complication of total hip arthroplasty. We describe the use of an Achilles allograft sling to improve hip stability. Eight patients treated with the sling were followed an average of 5 years. Seven patients had no recurrent instability and good postoperative range of motion. One graft failed in a patient with a neuropathic hip. Cadaveric biomechanical testing was also performed to investigate the stiffness and… CONTINUE READING
