Bone loss is a challenging problem with complex acetabular revisions. With an adequate biologic and mechanical environment, uncemented hemispheric component reconstructions have provided long-term durable results for acetabular revisions. Decisions about reconstructive options can be made with the aid of a classification system that addresses the location and severity of bone loss as it relates to achieving the prerequisites for biologic fixation with a hemispheric component.
