Traumatic hip dislocations and dislocation of total hip arthroplasties are common injuries. Closed reduction of either a dislocated hip or a total hip arthroplasty can be a demanding procedure and may necessitate open reduction if unsuccessful or lead to further complications. These include fracture or neurovascular injury to the patient, as well as injury to the surgeon when reducing the hip. This article describes a technique that reliably reduces dislocations while minimizing complications.
