Total hip arthroplasty (THA) in an ankylosed hip is a challenging procedure, especially in the presence of severe flexion deformity. The outcome of surgery largely depends on the surgical technique apart from the degree of the change that occurs in the muscles and soft tissues at the hip from long immobilization, and considerable postoperative rehabilitation is necessary. The complications in these cases are also higher than primary THA for nonankylosed hips. We report a case of a young teenage girl with both hips fused in severe flexion deformity. Surgical technique is described in detail, and pertinent literature is reviewed.
