Abstract

Nerve injuries after total hip arthroplasty are relatively uncommon, but a higher prevalence has been reported in revision arthroplasties, in women and in patients with dysplastic hips. We report a case of a patient who had a painful neuritis of the sciatic nerve after primary arthroplasty, without any objective evidence of motor or sensory deficit and had complete relief of pain after the limb lengths were matched to the contra-lateral side after revision arthroplasty.
