Hip resurfacing and pseudotumour.

Abstract:
Abstract: Metal on metal hip resurfacing has been used widely over the last ten years but there has been recent concern about destructive soft tissue reactions, which have been called pseudotumours by some authors. This has generated considerable controversy. This review explains why pseudotumours occur after resurfacing and how they can be prevented. It also supports the continued use of resurfacing in appropriate patients by appropriately trained surgeons.
