Owing to ignorance of public and their faith in masseurs, Orthopaedic Surgeons in India encounter old neglected or maltreated cases of trauma more often than in most other countries. Old untreated cases of central fracture dislocation and posterior dislocation of the hip present with traumatic arthritis with marked pain and disability, loss of motion at the hip joint and in some cases, shortening. The problem in these cases is to provide them with a pain-free reasonably stable and mobile hip. Arthrodesis can provide the former two but at the cost of the latter. This is a preliminary report of 6 patients treated by Smith Petersen’s cup arthroplasty.
