  • Sciatic neuropathy after total hip arthroplasty can result from several causes. We present a case in which a large cystic mass developed around a failed total hip arthroplasty. The lesion extended through the greater sciatic notch and into the pelvis producing sciatic nerve compression. The diagnosis was delayed, and the patient underwent a laminectomy without relief of symptoms before an abdominopelvic computed tomography (CT) scan revealed the mass. After revision of the components and… CONTINUE READING
