BACKGROUND The benefits of robotic techniques for implanting femoral components during THA are still controversial. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES The purpose of this study was to prospectively compare the results and complications of robotic-assisted and hand-rasping stem implantation techniques. METHOD The minimum followup was 5 years (mean, 67 months; range, 60-85 months). One hundred forty-six primary THAs on 130 patients were included in this study. Robot-assisted primary THA was performed on 75… CONTINUE READING
