Primary hip replacement with Structural bone grafting for dysplasia

This 31 year old lady had undergone multiple previous operations as a child to treat her developmental dysplasia of the left hip. She presented with increasing pain and reduction in the quality of her life due to hip problems. She underwent total hip replacement with a structural bone graft to reconstruct the acetabulum. This can be seen n the post-operative X-ray attached to the pelvis with 2 screws. It was not necessary to remove the previously inserted metal work in the femur.
