ABSTRACT

Extracting a fractured stem poses a technical challenge in revision surgery. A number of techniques have been described based on method of fixation (cemented or uncemented); location of the fracture; and composition of the stem alloy. These include the drilling and cortical window techniques. We describe our surgical removal of a proximally fractured cemented stem using a Mole wrench.
