Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Innsbruck, Anichstrasse 35, A-6020, Austria.

We report 2 cases of bone defects of the acetabulum. The first case was a patient who underwent a total hip arthroplasty. An intraoperative bleeding occurred because of an injury of an intrapelvic artery. Preoperative radiographs did not show this bone defect. A similar abnormality of the acetabulum was found in a series of 30 pelves that were dissected for a cadaver study. In this case, the bone defect was located in the center of the right acetabulum.

Severe intraoperative bleeding during revision hip arthroplasty in one of our patients was the motive of the work reported here. A review of the literature and an anatomical cadaver study were carried out. The distance between the acetabular fossa and the intrapelvic blood vessels was measured in 15 specimens. Read More

Purpose Of The Study: Impaction grafting can be used in cementless fixation with morsellized bone, bone graft, and hemispherical cup. The first goal of impaction grafting in revision of total hip arthroplasty is to transform segmental defects into cavitary defects and obtain a full compaction of the graft in order to restore the bone stock. The second goal is to achieve primary stability of the cup. Read More

Purpose Of The Study: The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the clinical and functional outcomes of total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients with acetabular fractures due to a low-energy injury. Acute primary THA included an antiprotrusion cage and autologous bone grafting of the acetabulum. This prospective study was carried out between 1998 and 2004. Read More

Purpose Of The Study: The aim of the study is a retrospective evaluation of our patients with a dysplastic acetabulum treated by total hip arthroplasty (THA), who were followed up for at least 5 years, and a comparison of our intermediate-term results with those in the relevant literature.

Material: In the period from June 1995 to June 2005, a total of 1305 total hip replacements were performed. Of these 293 were done in patients (213 women and 48 men) with the diagnosis of a dysplastic acetabulum; bilateral total hip arthroplasty was carried out in 18 women and four men. Read More
