Abstract

Introduction: Abductor deficiency can be a debilitating problem following hip arthroplasty surgery and causes severe pain, limp and instability.
Description of Technique: The authors had experienced abductor deficiency secondary to hemiarthroplasy following which a revision hemiarthroplasty was done and abductor reconstruction was performed using the anterior fibres of gluteus maximus. This flap served as a substitute for gluteus medius and minimus. Ultimately, both limp and pain showed prominent reduction.

Keywords: Abductor reconstruction with gluteus maximus, Revision hemiarthroplasty.
