Tips and Pearls

Revision hip surgery with modular revision hip systems is challenging, complex, and increasing in incidence. Operative tools are limited and when problems are encountered intraoperatively, tool removal apparatus is sparse. This report highlights one such instance during revision hip surgery and how that problem was overcome using the Dall-Miles cabling system.
