Reconstruction with the saddle prosthesis: Indications, surgical technique, and results

Seminars in Arthroplasty, 10(3):171-179
Rubert CK, Malawer MM, Rosenthal JL

The saddle prosthesis is a simple alternative to other methods of hip reconstruction for patients with extensive loss of acetabular bone following revision total hip arthroplasty or tumor resection. Previous reports have demonstrated its usefulness in limb-salvage surgery for benign and malignant tumors of the pelvis and following aseptic and septic revision surgery with resultant pelvic discontinuity. This report reviews the indications, anatomic considerations, surgical technique, and results of this method of reconstruction.
