Abstract

Total hip arthroplasty remains one of the most successful interventions in orthopaedic practice. However, complications can be devastating and costly. Recurrent dislocation is the most common reason for, and failure of, revision total hip arthroplasty. It is incumbent upon the treating surgeon to be familiar with up-to-date literature on patient risk stratification, surgical techniques, and implant technology to maximize successful patient outcomes and minimize instability after total hip arthroplasty and the attendant burdens to both the patient and treating institution.
