Caption

Hip socket bone grafting. Diagram showing the third stage in hip socket bone grafting as part of a total hip replacement operation. A metal mesh liner has been placed in the acetabulum (hip socket) in the patient's pelvis. Defects in the bone are filled with vigorously impacted morsellised cancellous bone (fragments). This is followed by fitting (using grey bone cement) and compression of the socket implant (acetabular cup) into which the 'ball' of the femoral implant (not shown) fits. For a sequence showing the process, see images C016/6783 to C016/6786.
