The success of total hip arthroplasty has been well documented. Aseptic loosening remains the major long∈rm problem that can lead to significant bone loss and structural deficits. Bone graft has been used with increasing frequency to reconstruct these difficult cases. In this review, the authors detail the biology, biomechanics, and banking of bone grafts. A summary of currently available data on the clinical result of autograft and allograft in reconstructive hip surgery is presented.
