Abstract

The Girdlestone pseudarthrosis is a resection or excisional arthroplasty of the head and neck of the femur and the protruding margins of the acetabulum (Fig. 12–1). Perhaps the earliest descriptions of this procedure were those of Schmalz in 1817 and White in 1821, both of whom used it for the treatment of tuberculosis of the hip in children. In 1827 John Rhea Barton reported on a pseudarthrosis after simple osteotomy of the proximal femur followed by early motion for the treatment of a hip ankylosed in poor position. Fock, in 1861, reported on the use of femoral head and neck resection in the treatment of severe osteoarthritis of the hip.1,15
