ABSTRACT
The article presents the case study of seventy-four-year-old man who had a painful nonunion of femoral neck fracture nine months after in situ pinning, and was treated with hybrid total hip arthroplasty. In this case report, the focus was on a retrieved cobalt-chromium alloy femoral head with an apparent protrusion in its main weight-bearing region, which contributed to the observed damage to the surface of the highly cross-linked ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene counter bearing.
