Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors report the results of 56 prosthetic implants on previous femoral osteotomy. The cases submitted to surgery, some time after the operation, present with clinical-radiographic results (movement and risk of loosening) that are worse than those cases that had not undergone osteotomy. Among complications, a higher incidence of intraoperative fractures and nerve paralysis were observed. Fractures always occurred when instrumentation was removed during the same prosthetic implantation procedure.
