My CT scan read l acetabular component is anteroverted. What does this mean?

I had a CT scan of my left hip due to instability and pain. Had hip replaced 3 yrs ago. The CT scan read l acetabular component is anteroverted. What does this mean? Do I need to see a orthopedic. It is hard for me to walk up steps and walk for any distance without hurting!!

Hi..
Can you post the pics of CT scan plates so that I can take a look at them?

Ante version of acetabular component after 3 years may be due to osteolysis with secondary loosening of implant and if major it can lead to dislocation of implanted hip which may require revision hip surgery..

Hope this helps..
