We report a long-term review of 41 acetabular reconstructions using impacted morsellized bone grafts and a cemented total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients younger than 50 (22-49; average 38) years. Reconstruction was performed in 23 primary THA (19 patients) and 18 revision THA (17 patients). 3 patients were lost to follow-up and 3 (4 hips) died within 10 years of surgery; none had a revision. Thus, 34 hips (30 patients) were reviewed with an average follow-up of 13 (10-18) years. In 2 hips, a revision was performed for aseptic loosening of the acetabular component 7 and 11 years after surgery. One additional cup was revised after 12 years during a femoral stem revision due to wear and matching problems, but was well fixed. The survival rate of the acetabular reconstruction technique was 94% (95% CI: 90-98%).
