Abstract

Prompt attention is typically required in managing intraoperative problems associated with total hip arthroplasty. There is often limited time for consultation or a review of the literature. The treating surgeon should be familiar with treatment options, favored treatment methods, and should be able to implement the most appropriate and optimal treatment for his or her patient. Common intraoperative complications associated with primary total hip arthroplasty include difficulty gaining sufficient exposure, problems with cup fixation, challenges with implant anteversion, intraoperative fracture of the femur, and difficulties with intraoperative limb length and hip instability.
