Chapter 50 Video 1: Acetabular Revision: Structural Grafts and Metal Augments

November 07, 2016

Contributors: Allan E Gross, MD, FRCSC, Prof

In the last ten years hyperporous metal augments have been used to reconstruct segmental defects in acetabular revision of the hip. These augments range in sizes and diameters and offer off the shelf customization for segmental defects. This video illustrates the use of conventional augments which are used to replace segmental defects up to 50% or less and the larger buttress augments which are used for segmental defects greater than 50%. These augments are usually used in conjunction with hyperporous revision shelves but they can also be used in conjunction with a cage when there is massive bone loss or pelvic discontinuity. The details of the surgical technique are outlined in this video.
