Resection arthroplasty following THA is rarely performed but occasionally indicated. It is a relatively low risk procedure and generally is a much shorter operative procedure associated with fewer perioperative complications compared to major revision procedures. Results are extremely variable. With all of the arthroplasty and bone graft options available for hip joint reconstruction, resection arthroplasty rarely is performed as a definitive procedure. It is, however, the best option for selected patients.
