A simple method using a PACS to minimize leg length discrepancy in primary THA: a method to minimize leg length discrepancy.


We determined whether a PACS-based method (head-lesser trochanter distance [HLD]) better equalized leg length discrepancy (LLD) after primary THA than a conventional method. We retrospectively reviewed 312 patients (379 hips) with osteonecrosis or primary osteoarthritis who underwent primary cementless THA: 198 patients (240 hips) underwent THA using the… (More)
