46 years old male had sustained fracture-dislocation of the left hip in a road traffic accident in 2011. Open reduction of left hip and plating of the posterior lip was made. He remained painless and normal for 5 years, and then he developed avascular necrosis of the left femoral head leading to secondary osteoarthritis of the left hip. Total hip replacement left was done in 2019. He is now absolutely normal and leading an everyday life.
