Case Study
This article discusses the challenges that occur with periprosthetic and proximal femoral fractures after hip resurfacing. A medical case study is presented of an older person with osteoarthritis who underwent the procedure of hip resurfacing with the use of a Cormet, which is a metal-on-metal resurfacing prosthesis. Also discussed are the guidelines from Great Britain's National Institute for Clinical Excellence and data from the Australian Orthopedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry.
