Periprosthetic fracture around hip replacement most commonly occur around femoral side.
In this rare case it occurred around the acetabular side.
On the night of surgery he had convulsions. The energy generated during convulsion is equivalent to 440 volt electric shock. It is enough to dislocate the joint or break any bone
This took care of the fracture and we could implant a new cup restoring his joint function
