Leg length discrepancy following total hip replacement (THR) can contribute to poor hip function. Abnormal gait, pain, neurological disturbance and patient dissatisfaction have all been described as a result of leg length inequality after THR. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of computer navigation in THR can improve limb length restoration and early clinical outcomes. We performed a matched-pair study comparing 48 computer-assisted THR with 48 THRs performed using a… CONTINUE READING
