Dislocated hip replacement. X-ray of the pelvis of a 75 year old female patient who has had a bilateral total hip replacement. The left hip (right) replacement has become dislocated. The metal ball-and-shaft implant (solid white) in the thigh bone (femur) has pushed out of the artificial socket (cup-shaped, centre right) with which it should articulate and form a joint in the pelvis.
