            - crowe classification:  (paprosky classification)

            - bone grafting for THR
            - protrusio deformity in THR

    - cotyloplasty technique: by Hartofilakidis G, et al. (1996) 
            - technique creates a controlled comminuted fracture of the medial wall which allows for medialization of the cup; 
            - acetabulum is reamed w/ small reamers; 
            - rearmers are direted postero-superiorly to avoid the thin anterior column; 
            - reaming progresses until the outer surface of the inner wall is reached; 
            - using osteotomes, create a controlled fracture of the thin medial wall, but care is taken not to perforate the inner layer of periosteum; 
            - autogenous cancellous graft is then sandwhiched against the medial wall; 
            - the bone graft and medial acetabular wall are then pushed inward; 
            - the acetabular component is then cemented into place;

    - medial protrusio technique: 
            - medial wall of a dysplastic acetabulum is intentionally perforated to allow coverage of the acetabular component without bone-graft support; 
            - results in placement of the medial aspect of the dome of the acetabular component medial to the Kohler line;
            - supplemental bone graft is an option;
            - multiholed revision cup for posterior superior and inferior screws for maximal support;
