Differences in muscle trauma quantifiable in the laboratory between the minimally invasive anterolateral and transgluteal approach

Abstract

In Europe the minimized transgluteal (TG) and anterolateral (AL) approaches are increasingly preferred in hip arthroplasty (THA). The present investigation determined which of these approaches causes the least muscle trauma. Forty patients who received a THA were enrolled in this prospective randomized study.
