Abstract

We report a case of fracture of a ceramic femoral head, which spontaneously occurred 4 years after implantation of an uncemented total hip replacement in a 48-year-old male patient with avascular necrosis of the hip. At revision surgery, the fractured ceramic head was replaced with a 32-mm metallic femoral head.
