Introduction: The incidence of heterotopic ossification after total hip replacement is variable in the literature. If symptomatic, it may cause pain and reduced range of motion. Dual mobility total hip replacements have been considered a valuable option for the treatment of femoral neck fractures in the active patients, achieving good range of motion with reduced risk of dislocation. The occurrence of HO may have detrimental effect on this type of articulation and may accelerate polyethylene wear and predispose to intra-prosthetic dislocation. We compared the incidence of HO in DMC versus conventional THR in femoral neck fracture patients across 3 large trauma institutes
