First perforator vein cement occlusion following total hip arthroplasty.

Abstract:
Cement intravasation of the venous system is a rare complication of total hip arthroplasty. This is a case report of a 54-year-old female who sustained cement occlusion of the first perforator vein of the femur after hybrid total hip arthroplasty. However, she was asymptomatic and attained excellent clinical outcome. Differential diagnoses for the radiographic appearance are discussed as well as possible reasons for this occurrence.
