OBJECTIVE Examine the role of surgical orientation of the acetabular cup on posterior dislocation propensity for small-head-size total hip arthroplasty. DESIGN A finite element model of a widely used total hip arthroplasty system was examined for peak resisting moment and range-of-motion prior to impingement, as well as prior to onset of posterior… CONTINUE READING
