Abstract: Although the cement in cement technique is a simple method for exchanging cemented stems, it may be technical demanding. The different geometry of different-offset Exeter long stems can be a problem with this technique. We describe a case revision hip surgery as a consequence of neglected bipolar hemiarthroplasty dislocation in which a 44 mm offset long stem was exchanged by a shorter and smaller size 37.5 mm offset stem. The implications of the procedure and the surgical pitfalls are discussed.
