Abstract

Dislocation is a dramatic and distressing common complication following total hip replacement. The first article describing this study, published last week, considered some of the factors thought to predispose to dislocation. The authors emphasised the multifactorial nature of hip replacement dislocation and in this second article they examine the factors relating to acetabular position and orientation, and femoral component placement.
