Abstract

Skeletal dysplasia or dwarfism presents in a host of manners. Degenerative hip disease can present as a primary problem secondary to the abnormal growth disturbance or secondarily from the abnormal load distributions through the hip joint itself. Total hip arthroplasty is a successful procedure but sought with increased risks and complications when compared to routine hip arthroplasty. Custom or modular hip implants can help a surgeon manage the abnormal bone morphology seen with this condition.
