Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 62-year-old man who was presented with severe primary osteoarthritis in his left hip. He underwent two total hip arthroplasty revision surgeries wherein the first surgery conducted in November 2006 was due to fractured ceramic femoral head while the second performed in February 2007 was due to complete fracture of the modular femoral neck. The case study focuses on the fracture of the modular femoral neck.
