BACKGROUND The direct anterior approach (DAA) for total hip arthroplasty has claimed to be a true tissue-sparing minimally invasive approach that has less tissue damage and a faster recovery when compared to the posterolateral approach (PLA). The aim of this randomized controlled trial is to measure the differences in serum markers and functional outcomes between the DAA and PLA for total hip arthroplasty. METHODS Forty-six patients were prospectively included and randomized for either the… CONTINUE READING
