Abstract

A case of fracture of the ceramic head of a total hip arthroplasty is presented, which was a total cementless arthroplasty with ceramic-on-ceramic articulation. No history of trauma was observed. The arthroplasty was revised, and a new cementless arthroplasty with a polyethylene insert and a metal head was inserted. The result has been satisfactory.
