Case Study
The article presents case studies of orthopedic surgery patients in whom hip resurfacing arthroplasty with implants failed because of a loosening of the acetabular shell secondary to the debonding of the surface coating of their implants. A discussion of surgical repairs that were conducted on the patients to correct the implant failures is presented.
