An attempt was made to preserve the medial osteophyte when reaming the acetabulum in 37 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty over one year. The patients were examined clinically at six weeks and one year post-operatively. The medial wall preserved was measured from the radiographs using a digital system. The mean amount of wall preserved was 3.16mm and the patients were 100% satisfied with outcome.Preserving acetabular bone stock, has implications in acetabular revision surgery.
