Managing severe periacetabular bone loss during revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a challenging task. Multiple treatment options have been described. A custom triflanged acetabular component is a recent treatment option. The authors retrospectively reviewed 19 hips in 19 patients with massive periacetabular bone loss (Paprosky types 3A/3B and AAOS types III/IV) treated with custom triflanged acetabular components. Mean patient age at surgery was 58 years (range, 42-79 years).At an average follow-up of 31 months (range, 16-59 months), mean Harris Hip Score had improved from 38 preoperatively to 63 postoperatively, and mean Western Ontario McMaster Osteoarthritis Index scores had improved from 43 preoperatively to 26 postoperatively. Sixty-five percent of cases were considered successful. Three (16%) patients had significant complications; 2 (11%) custom triflanged acetabular components were removed due to failure. At last follow-up, 6 (43%) of 14 patients reported that their ambulatory status was improved vs their preoperative status, 3 (21%) reported no change, and 5 (36%) reported that their ambulatory status was worse than their preoperative status.In this study, the use of a custom triflanged acetabular component for massive periacetabular bone loss in revision THA had less favorable results than in other reports. Use of a custom triflanged acetabular component for massive periacetabular bone loss in revision THA remains a viable option, but surgeon and patient expectations should be realistic.
