Author information

  • 1Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Abstract

Total hip arthroplasty, for both primary and revision operations, frequently involves bony abnormalities of the acetabulum. No standard nomenclature currently exists for the definition of acetabular deficiencies. A classification system is presented to assist in the preoperative evaluation and to provide a treatment protocol for these defects.
