Anatomical reconstruction of high riding hips by total hip arthroplasty (THA) and subtrochanteric shortening osteotomy aims to normalise gait pattern and improve functional hip scores. We present the medium-term clinical results of a group of patients with high riding dislocated hips in whom a cementless THA and subtrochanteric shortening osteotomy had been performed. We compared them with their preoperative status, with patients who had undergone a cementless THA for primary osteoarthritis, and also with a group of healthy gender and age-matched controls.
