66 years old lady presented with pain, limp and inability to bear full weight over left lower limb for the past 1 year.
Patient had history of surgical intervention done elsewhere in view of proximal femur fracture 1 year back. Fracture was fixed with short PFN A2. Surgical site has been healed with primary intention and has no sign of infection. Her blood investigations were also come to be within normal limits.
Present X-Ray showing non union fracture proximal femur with Failed PFN in situ.
Thus planned for PFN removal and conversion to UNCEMENTED (DUAL MOBILITY) THR with long stem to bypass the distal screw.
Post op showing well press fit uncemented Total Hip Replacement (THR) with dual mobility cup to enhance the stability. These cases are challenging due to presence of ununited fracture in proximal femur and needs extra care for stability. We routinely do these cases with good outcomes using special dual mobility cup concept.
Now patient is happy, walking comfortably with support.
