Minimally invasive hip approaches decrease soft tissue damage but reduce the view of the operating field. The combination of minimally invasive approaches with navigation techniques can resolve this conflict. A modified anterolateral approach was used for minimally invasive implantation of hip endoprostheses, in combination with a navigation technique. A newly developed femoral clamp was used in the study, which allowed a secure fixation of the navigation reference frame without compromising the visibility of the small incision. The results included short skin incisions and hip joint muscle reservation, with only a moderate increase in operating times.
