An unusual cause for a painful Birmingham hip resurfacing.

Islam KA, Blake SM - Ann R Coll Surg Engl (2013)

Bottom Line: His hip pain worsened following the procedure and was under systematic investigation for this.Subsequent investigation for vascular disease revealed a total infrarenal aortic occlusion.An aortobifemoral bypass improved the hip pain and function dramatically, and the patient now has an excellent quality of life.

ABSTRACT
The painful total hip arthroplasty requires careful evaluation and investigation. This is usually focused on the prosthesis and adjacent anatomical structures. We present a case report of a 64-year-old man who had a Birmingham hip resurfacing procedure for primary osteoarthritis. His hip pain worsened following the procedure and was under systematic investigation for this. Subsequent investigation for vascular disease revealed a total infrarenal aortic occlusion. An aortobifemoral bypass improved the hip pain and function dramatically, and the patient now has an excellent quality of life.
