Computerized Virtual Surgery Demonstrates Where Acetabular Rim Osteophytes Most Reduce Range of Motion Following Total Hip Arthroplasty

Acetabular osteophytes are common findings during total hip arthroplasty (THA). This study was designed to determine the extent to which osteophytes may limit range of motion (ROM) and in which locations impingement is likely to occur if osteophytes are not removed during surgery. Computer-aided design was used to compare ROM of a modern hip implant in four… (More)
