The purpose of this study is to evaluate results of isolated acetabular revision with ceramic-on-ceramic bearings using a ceramic head with a metal sleeve. A retrospective review of fifty-three hips was performed. The mean patient age was 49.9years and the mean follow-up period was 5.7years. The mean modified Harris hip score improved from 47.5, pre-operatively, to 84.7 at the time of last follow-up (P<0.001). Two patients reported squeaking of the hip. Three patients experienced loosening cup, necessitating re-revision surgery. There was a significant difference of acetabular bone defect between loose cup group and stable cup group (P=0.018). There were no ceramic fractures and no osteolysis. The survival rate of the acetabular cup at the mid-term follow-up was 94.3%. In conclusion, ceramic head with a metal sleeve can be a reliable option for isolated acetabular revision.
