We review the case of a 48-year-old male with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), who presented with chronic right hip pain after a previous total hip arthroplasty (THA) in 1988 and revision THA (rTHA) in 2013. Routine radiographs demonstrated failure of his right acetabulum component with debonding of the bone implant interface and a well-fixed femoral component. The patient underwent a rTHA using a direct anterior approach (DAA) that resulted in a successful recovery without complication at one year. We report the successful result of the first case of a rTHA using a DAA in a patient with AMC.
