This study reports on differences in the use of minimally invasive surgery for total hip arthroplasty related to the direction of cup insertion against the operating table, intraoperative hip range of motion, stability, and a choice of cup liners for both a mini-incision posterior approach (MPA) and a mini-incision anterior approach (MAA) using Stryker(More)
The purpose of the current study was to evaluate whether safe acetabular component position depends on differences in pelvic location between the supine, standing, and sitting positions. The subjects of the current study were 101 patients who had total hip arthroplasty. Anteroposterior radiographs of the pelvis with the patients in the supine, standing, and(More)
We performed a modified, rotational acetabular osteotomy through a lateral transtrochanteric approach on 19 hips in 18 patients with a dysplastic joint. Six hips in six patients were operated on using the original approach. The mean age at operation was 28 years (14 to 54) and the mean period of follow-up 2.3 years (1 to 4.4). Clinical evaluation using the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate three-dimensional (3D) distribution of acetabular articular cartilage thickness in patients with hip dysplasia using in vivo magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and to compare cartilage thickness distribution between normal and dysplastic hips. DESIGN Forty-five dysplastic hips without joint space narrowing on(More)
Simulation of prosthetic impingement is important for preventing complications after total hip arthroplasty (THA). Although the anatomical hip range of motion (ROM) in patients after THA is an essential parameter for these simulations, previous simulation studies substituted various clinical hip ROMs for the anatomical hip ROM. Using a navigation system,(More)
We investigated the effect of the Birmingham hip resurfacing (BHR) arthroplasty on the bone mineral density (BMD) of the femur. A comparative study was carried out on 26 hips in 25 patients. Group A consisted of 13 patients (13 hips) who had undergone resurfacing hip arthroplasty with the BHR system and group B of 12 patients (13 hips) who had had(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to examine the three-dimensional (3D) progression patterns of early acetabular cartilage damage in hip dysplasia using high-resolutional computed tomography (CT) arthrography. DESIGN Thirty-two dysplastic hips of 26 Japanese symptomatic females including 21 hips in pre-stage of osteoarthritis (Kellgren-Lawrence(More)
Component positions in a consecutive series of total hip arthroplasty through a posterolateral approach without capsular and external rotator repair, using the same prosthesis type, head size, and liner, were evaluated using computed tomography, and correlation with occurrence of postoperative dislocation was assessed. The 9 hips with posterior dislocation(More)
PURPOSE To assess the clinical feasibility of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with a mechanical loading system for evaluation of load-bearing function in knee joints using cartilage T2 as a surrogate of cartilage matrix changes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sagittal T2 maps of the medial and lateral femorotibial joints of 22 healthy volunteers were obtained(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of different surgical approaches, the posterolateral approach (PLA) and the direct anterior approach (DAA), on postoperative femoral anteversion and stem coronal and sagittal alignment in total hip arthroplasty (THA), and to identify the factors related to postoperative femoral anteversion and stem(More)
