Posterior Femoral Neck Impingement Secondary to Excess Acetabular Anteversion in Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty

Journal of Arthroplasty, 05/21/2012

The authors present a case of delayed diagnosis of excess acetabular component anteversion causing posterior femoral neck impingement and pain. The authors correlate the degree of damage found intraoperatively with the degree of component malposition on the radiographs. This is used as a platform to discuss the optimum positioning of hip resurfacing components and the radiographic methods used to determine component position postoperatively.
