Abstract

Late hip dislocation is uncommon, particularly in the context of paraplegia. We report a case in which total hip arthroplasty with a semi-constrained acetabular component was a successful treatment for this condition. A review of the literature revealed that this method of treatment had not been previously described in paraplegics. For patients with late hip dislocation in spastic paraplegia, total hip arthroplasty with a semi-constrained acetabular component, combined with adequate adductor release and obturator neurectomy is recommended.
