This was a 45-year-old patient with bilateral hip replacements done 15 years back. They were old Charnley style prosthesis which were cemented well and lasted for 15 years. The acetabulum had Paprosky type 2c defect and needed a hemispherical jumbo cup. I reconstructed the acetabulum with bone graft at the base and a 66 mm trabecular metal cup. The femur was reconstructed using cement on cement technique as the previous cement mantle was well preserved. I have revised both his hips using the same technique.
