With the incidence of primary total hip arthroplasty continuing to rise in the United States, the innovation behind improving current total hip arthroplasty systems inevitably grows with it-each new design potentially ushering in new flaws. We report a case of screw failure with the Arcos Modular Femoral Revision System-Trochanteric Bolt and Claw Technique in a 74-year-old male patient. The patient presented to the investigator's clinic for their 20-month follow-up evaluation of their complex right hip revision. Radiographs revealed failure of the screw attaching the claw plate to the stem resulting in dislodgement and relocation of the screw within the intra-articular cavity. The patient elected for nonsurgical management and will continue to be monitored. Consent by the patient involved in this case report was obtained.
