Extract

The use of modularity in femoral stem designs for total hip arthroplasty has increased substantially over the past several years. The theoretical advantages of this design include the optimization of femoral anteversion, limb length, and offset of the femoral component. We report on a previously unreported fracture of a modular femoral neck device.
