Arthroscopically-assisted removal of distal centraliser of an MS-30 femoral stem using a cannulated reamer in revision hip arthroplasty

Revision hip arthroplasty can be challenging especially when difficulties to remove distal centralisers arise.

We report a case where we removed a well-fixed 1st-generation solid MS-30 distal centraliser combining standard cannulated trauma reamers and arthroscopical guidance. Such case has not been reported in the past and this technical tip can be useful in revision procedures of the specific implant.
