Abstract

The use of constrained acetabular liners is indicated when soft-tissue tensioning techniques such as femoral neck lengthening, component repositioning, and use of lateralized acetabular liner are ineffective. It is most commonly used as a salvage procedure in revision situations. However, a locking acetabular insert may be used for primary THAs in patients with joint or soft-tissue laxity, neuromuscular disease, or intraoperative instability. In addition to the described commercially available liners, several manufacturers will provide customized components on request.
