Incidence of total hip arthroplasties being performed is on a rise across the world, consequently we would see more and more revisions hip arthroplasties being done for various indications such as infection, loosening, wear, metallosis, trauma; alone or a combination of the above factors. This case report highlights one of the rare but interesting scenarios that a revision hip surgeon must be prepared to encounter while planning to perform a technically challenging revision hip arthroplasty surgery. This report also thus emphasizes the importance of extensive pre-operative planning in terms of technique and timing of the procedure, the skills set and the armamentarium of tools that may be needed for a demanding revision arthroplasty procedure.
