We report the results of using impacted cancellous allografts and cement for fixation of the femoral component when revision arthroplasty is required in the face of lost bone stock. In 56 hips reviewed after 18 to 49 months there were few complications and a majority of satisfactory results with evidence of incorporation of the graft. Further study and review are necessary, but the use of the method appears to be justified.
