Resurfacing hemiarthroplasty of the femoral head has been recommended as a bone-preserving alternative to total hip arthroplasty for the management of osteonecrosis of the femoral head in the young patient. This case report describes failure of a cemented resurfacing hemiarthroplasty resulting from a fracture through the stem of the implant.
