ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 49-year old man who develops modular femoral neck fracture after four years of his total hip arthroplasty. It states that the man reveals to have no signs of infection, but confirms with fracture of the modular neck prior to tests. It says that the femoral stem and the distal fragment fracture was removed, and was found to contain fretting and corrosion damage. It concludes that patient's body habitus may contribute to the fretting and corrosion damage.
