We present a case of successful and uncomplicated total hip arthroplasty with an acetabular reinforcement device in an elderly patient with hip osteoarthritis already diagnosed with factor XI deficiency, which is a very rare bleeding disorder and at high risk of post-operative haemorrhage, and it poses a substantial challenge to surgeons as a consequence of the specific risks of infection and fixation failure. Moreover, bone fragility in elderly patient increases potential risk of adverse event. Fresh frozen plasma was used to supplement factor XI activity. Importantly, transfusion-transmitted disease such as having factor XI inhibitor was promptly surveyed prior to the supplement since the patient had previous history of the administration of fresh frozen plasma. Under prompt and effective peri-operative haemostasis, rigid implant fixation and rigorous attention to the prevention of infection seem to achieve the best possible outcomes for elderly patients with a bleeding disorder undergoing total hip arthroplasty.
Key words: Total hip arthroplasty / Direct anterior approach / Factor XI deficiency / Kerboull-type acetabular reinforcement device
