Chapter 62 Video 1: Femoral Revision: Allograft Prosthetic Composite

November 07, 2016

Contributors: Michael D Ries, MD

Allograft prosthetic composite (APC) is indicated when there is massive segmental proximal femoral bone loss and other methods of reconstruction are not suitable. The proximal femoral bone loss occurs from a number of causes including osteolysis, periprosthetic fracture, and infection usually in association with multiple failed THA and revision procedures. The allograft is a circumferential structural replacement of the proximal femur. A long stem femoral implant extends through the allograft and into distal host femoral bone. Further stability of the allograft host bone junction can be achieved with cable plating or allograft struts if necessary.
