Abstract

▶ Most acetabular revisions can be managed with a hemispherical component with screw fixation. ▶ Areas of segmental bone loss that preclude acetabular component stability may be managed with structural allograft or second-generation porous metal augments. ▶ Acetabular cages have a limited application but can be a useful tool in the management of massive bone loss and pelvic discontinuity.
