AbstractArthrodesis of the hip has been employed since the late 19th century. Late complications can arise decades after fusion in patients who were previously asymptomatic. We describe two patients who developed pain in the hip many years after a successful fusion. There was no infection or loosening of the implants. After careful investigation, including oblique radiographs and diagnostic injections of local anaesthetic, the pain was found to be caused by protrusion of the implant. Subsequent removal of the device resulted in complete resolution of the symptoms. ©2008 British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery.
