Abstract

Revision surgeries in failed proximal femoral pathologies following osteosynthesis or some kind of replacements pose a challenging task. These can be well managed by distally well fitted extensively coated hydroxyapatide long non-cemented interlocked Reef-Dupuy stem. Here a short series of 10 cases with average follow-up of 3 years is being presented.
