Revision Hip for aseptic loosening of stem and socket

This 65 year old man developed increasing pin and difficulty weightbearing on his left hip which had been replaced 12 years previously. The X-rays showed looseing of the stem and the socket. There was no suggestion of infection. The hip was revised using an uncemented stem and impaction grafting with a cemented socket.
