This retrospective study compared the efficacy of computer navigation and conventional freehand techniques to place acetabular component orientation in the target position of acetabular cup inclination of 45 degrees and anteversion of 20 degrees . We selected 69 patients who had undergone total hip arthroplasty with freehand cup insertion who had computed tomography (CT) to plan for acetabular cup placement of the contralateral side. This group was compared with 98 patients who underwent CT… CONTINUE READING
