Routine Fracture Fixation for a Periprosthetic Hip Fracture Below Birmingham Hip Resurfacing: A Case Report
JBJS case connector , Volume 10 - Issue 3 p. e1900540
CASE: We present a case of a 56-year-old man who sustained a basal cervical periprosthetic fracture around a well-fixed metal-on-metal hip resurfacing arthroplasty (MoMHRA). Although several fixation methods have been described, there seems to be no consensus about the optimal fixation method for fractures around MoMHRAs. This fracture could be regarded as a Vancouver type-B1 or -C periprosthetic fracture, so we successfully treated our patient in a standard way with a dynamic hip screw (DHS) and one cannulated hip screw. CONCLUSION: We describe DHS fixation as a successful treatment option for periprosthetic hip fractures around well-fixed MoMHRA.
