Abstract

Cortical strut allografting is indicated in patients with femoral deficiencies, primarily in revision hip arthroplasties. Most defects are caused by osteolysis, which may be localized or global. Healing of struts is predictable in 96.6% of cases. Clinical hip scores are also improved by more than 30 points, despite the severity of bone defects.
