Dislocation after hip replacement is a complication that can have dramatic consequences for the patient. The purpose of this article is to review the different parameters influencing stability and how to reduce this risk. The approach, the diameter of the femoral head, and the use of dual-mobility acetabular cups have led to a drastic reduction in the rate of dislocation, particularly in patients at risk, in cases of imbalance of the spino-pelvic complex, or in cases of revision surgery. The inclusion of patients in dedicated clinical pathways and participation in preoperative education sessions also contribute to the reduction of dislocation risk.
