As outlined in our January 16, 2013 editorial, “The Case Report Redefined with JBJS Case Connector,” one important role of JBJS Case Connector is to alert the orthopaedic community about a potentially problematic device or therapy. When two or more such cases with similar mechanisms appear, we will identify the procedure or implant as a “watchable” intervention.

Adverse local tissue response (ALTR) to metal debris associated with hip arthroplasty is presently a hot topic of discussion in the orthopaedic community. Most of the cases reported have involved metal-on-metal (MoM) bearings; consequently, there has been a drive to design devices with alternative bearing surfaces. However, two case reports in the March 2014 editions of JBJS Case Connector and a third from 2012 suggest that ALTR and resulting pseudotumor formation can occur with non-MoM bearings.
