Satisfactory results seen in revision THA with acetabular reinforcement, HA granules, autograft

Using acetabular revision for loosening as an endpoint, investigators of this study found more than 90% acetabular component survival at 10 years among patients who underwent revision total hip arthroplasty for acetabular bone deficiency using a Kerboull-type acetabular reinforcement device to support hydroxyapatite granules and structural autograft.

Researchers retrospectively evaluated 37 patients who underwent the revision procedure for American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons type II and III acetabular defects. Patients had a minimum follow-up of 10 years and a mean follow-up of 12.8 years.
