Since its creation in 1974, the Dual Mobility Cup (DMC) has been gaining in popularity, especially in the past decade. This intensive use could lead to inappropriate use and consequently to an increased complication rate. Compliance with conceptual requirements and surgical techniques will prevent the occurrence of complications that can be wrongly attributed to implants. In this context, we feel that it is essential to share our tips and tricks as well as an overview and an explanation of common errors, based on more than 45 years of clinical and research experience. From basic principles, including indications, implant choice and implant compatibility, to surgical tips, in this article orthopedic surgeons will find a practical overview of DMC in order to use it safely and with confidence.
