Late transection of the sciatic nerve in association with an acetabular reconstruction cage

Author(s): Gauthier L, Allen D, Kim P

Abstract

We report a case of a late-onset sciatic nerve palsy that occurred in association with an acetabular reconstruction cage. On surgical exploration, the nerve was found to be completely transected secondary to abrasion over the posterior flange of the reconstruction cage.
