A new straight cementless stem was used for replacement of 67 dislocated or severely dysplastic hips. There were 45 hips with complete dislocation, 27 of which were cases after Schanz osteotomy. Technical solutions for various deformities are presented here. The acetabular component was placed at the level of the original cotyloid cavity or some lower position. In hips after total dislocation a metaphyseal shortening osteotomy was combined with distal advancement of the greater trochanter with… CONTINUE READING
