Abstract:

Reconstruction of the failed acetabular component in the setting of massive bone loss and acetabular fracture is one of the most difficult technical challenges in orthopedic surgery. Custom Triflange Acetabular Components (CTAC) has been shown to be useful for managing massive bone loss with pelvic discontinuity. Here we present a case of a patient with massive bone loss stemming from a history of a complex acetabulum fracture and periprosthetic infection which was successfully reconstructed using a CTAC.
