Surgery 2017: Treatment of acetabular bone loss with associated pelvic discontinuity in revision total hip arthroplasty: Acetabular distraction technique- Neil Sheth, University of Pennsylvania


As the number of primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) procedures performed continues to rise, the burden of revision THA procedures is also expected to increase. With patients undergoing THA at younger ages and living longer, revision patients are presenting with greater bone loss at the time of revision surgery. The proper evaluation and treatment of acetabular bone loss at the time of revision surgery is complex and is further complicated in the face of a chronic pelvic discontinuity. Identifying proper pre-operative patient assessment in conjunction with detailed pre-operative planning is essential for obtaining favorable clinical results. Appropriate radiographs are critical in assessing acetabular bone loss, and specific classification schemes can identify bone loss patterns and guide available treatment options. The presentation reviews the surgical decision making and clinical results of different surgical options for the treatment of acetabular bone loss, and introduces a novel technique for the treatment of a chronic pelvic discontinuity.


Incessant pelvic irregularity is a significant and troublesome entanglement of absolute hip arthroplasty (THA), assessed to be the reason for 1–5% of all acetabular revisions.The most basic explanations behind amendment THA are unsteadiness/separation, mechanical releasing, and contamination. Correction THA is getting progressively normal because of an expanding number of essential THA methods being performed yearly. Kurtz et al. shown an anticipated increment of 137% of all out hip updates constantly 2030. The coming of mechanical headways in THA have permitted us to address patients with expanding future and more prominent requests on the inserts. Be that as it may, the issue of constant pelvic irregularity can be relied upon to turn out to be increasingly normal.

Characterizing acetabular bone imperfections:
The Paprosky characterization is the most ordinarily used framework for acetabular bone misfortune. The framework's discoveries depend on the area of the hip focus of turn concerning the unrivaled obturator line, the nearness of osteolysis at the ischium and at the tear drop, and the connection of the hip focal point of pivot comparative with Köhler's (ilioischial) line.

Pre-employable assessment:
Good clinical results depend on cautious assessment and pre-employable arranging. Patients frequently present clinically with torment, trouble with ambulation and leg-length error because of relocation of the cup and hip focus. A point by point history ought to be archived viewing the file system just as pre-and post-usable indications. A full arrangement of radiographs ought to be gotten including an anteroposterior (AP) pelvis, AP and sidelong of the hip, and a cross-table horizontal of the hip. At times, a registered tomography (CT) can be an incredible subordinate to evaluate the degree and area of bone misfortune, as it is as often as possible belittled on plain radiographs. In cases with serious average relocation, CT angiography ought to be acquired to comprehend the relationship of intra-pelvic neurovascular structures to the acetabular segment.

Pre-employable research center assessment including white platelet tally, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and C-receptive protein ought to be gotten before all update THAs. Raised markers should provoke a pre-usable hip yearning.

Treatment alternatives:
A fruitful remaking is predicated on the capacity to accomplish stable obsession of a cementless build, the science of the staying bone stock, and the capacity to recuperate the incessant brokenness. Ceaseless pelvic irregularity is commonly connected with poor science and acts likewise to an atrophic or sinewy non-association. Treatment alternatives incorporate enclosure recreation with mass acetabular allograft, custom triflange acetabular segment, a cup-confine build, enormous acetabular cup with permeable metal expands, or acetabular interruption with a permeable tantalum shell with or without measured permeable increases.

Enclosure reproduction with mass acetabular allograft:
Verifiably, monstrous mass allograft, utilized related to an established liner in the setting of constant pelvic intermittence had a half disappointment rate. 16, 17 Additionally, there is worry for this kind of remaking because of unite resorption and disease dangers related with the allograft.

Another strategy for obsession was an autonomous acetabular pen utilized as a spanning gadget to traverse the ilium and the ischium. Once more, results were poor with high paces of complexity and announced disappointments of up to 50–60%. With the appearance of trabecular metal inserts, mass allografts were utilized less often, because of improved biologic ingrowth and no worries for embed resorption.

Cup-Cage develop:
With the accessibility of permeable trabecular metal inserts and their expanded capacity for biologic ingrowth, the cup-confine develop has picked up eagerness as a valuable treatment alternative. These develops are ensured by a confine while biologic obsession is accomplished at the host bone-cup interface. This method includes the position of a profoundly permeable large acetabular cup against have bone, with or without permeable metal expands, and a pen that traverses the imperfection with obsession into the ilium and ischium.

Custom triflange acetabular part:
CTACs can likewise be utilized for huge acetabular imperfections with serious bone misfortune. A three-dimensional CT filter is gotten and used to make a plastic model of the pelvis. A model is then made of the deformity from which a custom triflange gadget is fabricated. The gadget can be permeable as well as hydroxyapatite covered and have ribs to the ilium, ischium and pubis. Long haul results are as yet pending to decide how such a hardened develop will influence have bone.

Gigantic acetabular cup with permeable metal expands:
Another method for remaking is the implantation of profoundly permeable metal acetabular segments related to permeable metal enlarges. Osseointegration and hard ingrowth are foremost for long haul endurance of modification cementless acetabular parts. Trabecular metal inserts have a lower correction and intricacy rate than different techniques, as showed by an ongoing efficient audit. Ideal results have been accounted for, with survivorship from 92 to 100%.These ahead of schedule to mid-term results are promising, yet long haul information is as yet pending.

Creators favored procedure − acetabular interruption:
The procedure was initially portrayed by Sporer et al. in 2012. The hip bone socket is drawn nearer by means of a standard back methodology and the segment is evacuated. Development is evaluated at the break site and free movement of the predominant and second rate portions is characteristic of intermittence Fibrous tissues and other intervened tissue is debrided until sound draining bone is seen. A definite evaluation ought to be assumed of bone misfortune absconds, permitting appropriate expand choice and arrangement.

Acetabular bone misfortune and constant pelvic intermittence in update THA is a difficult and progressively visit issue. Proper pre-employable workup and adjustment procedures are expected to acquire long haul cementless obsession and build dependability. The Paprosky grouping framework ought to be utilized all together the assistance control the fitting treatment intercession.

Numerous treatment alternatives are accessible and show good results. Our treatment of decision for interminable pelvic irregularity is acetabular interruption procedure with or without the utilization of permeable metal measured enlarges. Information with respect to treatment results of interruption are constrained, yet early results are promising, and this is the creator's favored treatment for incessant pelvic intermittence.
