The article focuses on the clinical evaluation and preoperative planning, classification system and operative techniques used in managing acetabular bone loss in revision total hip arthroplasty. It notes that bone loss classification is allowing a surgeon in predicting the planning for reconstructive possibilities. Moreove, acetabular access through careful exposure allows effective reconstruction while most acetabular revisions can be managed with a cementless hemispherical component.
