Procedure for hip arthroplasty (Items 49372 - 49398)

For the purpose of acetabular bone grafting:

  1. Minor bone grafting is intended to cover Paprosky 1 and 2A defects (i.e. minor acetabular derangement / bone loss). 
  2. Major bone grafting is intended to cover Paprosky 2B, 2C, 3A and 3B defects (i.e. major acetabular derangement / bone loss). Outside of the acetabulum, a major bone graft is considered to be structural in nature, such as a substantive impaction femoral graft, a strut allograft, or equivalent.
