Cerclage wires in hip joint replacements can sometimes be encountered on postoperative radiographs or other cross-sectional imaging. They are typically seen around the femoral stem and are usually used to stabilize a proximal femoral crack after stem insertion in cementless total hip arthroplasty. At times more than one wire may be present.
