Less-invasive techniques for total hip arthroplasty (THA) have sparked an increased interest among orthopedic surgeons and patients. There has been concern regarding decreased surgical exposure and compromise in prosthesis durability. We present the first long-term outcome of THA performed via the mini-incision posterior approach to show the durability of implant fixation. We compare the clinical and radiographic findings with previously published findings of authors using the same femoral… CONTINUE READING
