In a series of 2,050 low-friction arthroplasties, 61 cases (2.97%) of dislocation were analyzed. The mechanism of production was malposition of the components (group 1, 33%), deficiency of the abductor mechanism (group 2, 34%), or the association of both (group 3, 26%). Failure to find a cause was even more rare (group 4, 7%). The best treatment is prevention by careful surgical technique, since good results with different procedures have only been attained in 51% of dislocated hips.
