A 48 year old gentleman underwent Bilateral primary Total Hip Replacement in 1994. A revision Right THR was done in 1997 due to early component loosening. He was comfortable for the last 15 years. He presented to us with complaints in hip and thigh region since last 1 year. Pain had progressively increased over a period of time. On examination there was no gross instability or any evidence of infection. X-rays showed loosening of the femoral component.
