Abstract

Postoperative dislocation remains one of the most frequent complications following total hip replacement. In this report, a case is presented that illustrates two potential concerns with postoperative dislocation and subsequent closed reduction. The first complication presented in this report is entrapment of a closed drainage system tube in the joint space following closed reduction. The second complication, transfer of metallic debris to a ceramic femoral head from contact with an acetabular shell during closed reduction, was documented by analysis of a femoral head using scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry. This report emphasizes the need for the surgeon to express caution when relocating a dislocated hip, particularly when a closed drainage system is used postoperatively.
