Abstract

Acetabular reconstruction in both primary and revision hip arthroplasty often requires reconstruction of deficient acetabular bone stock. The exact role of allografts remains controversial. Published results of structural allografting are presented. Recent literature supports the use of segmental allografts for reconstruction of large segmental and combined defects.
