Periprosthetic fractures in the resurfaced hip--A case report and review of the literature.Brennan, Stephen A; Devitt, Brian M; O'Neill, Cathleen J; Nicholson, Paul; Adelaide and Meath Hospital, Dublin, Ireland. firstname.lastname@example.org (2013-02)Traumatic periprosthetic fractures adjacent a hip resurfacing prosthesis are rare. When proximal fractures are encountered the obvious surgical solution is to revise to a large head stemmed femoral component. A previously well functioning implant may however be retained as various non-operative and operative treatment options exist. This paper reports the case history of a traumatic periprosthetic fracture successfully treated with cannulated screw fixation and reviews the current literature.
