This study evaluates primary hip replacement performed using a modified posterior approach through a limited posterior trochanteric osteotomy bone block that includes the insertions of the posterior capsule and short external rotators--as this may enhance secure reattachment of the posterior soft-tissue envelope and protect against postoperative instability. Sixty-eight consecutive primary hip replacements performed through a posterior trochanteric osteotomy were prospectively followed. Two…

Modified osteotomy of posterolateral overhanging part of the trochanter via posterior approach for hip arthroplasty: an anatomical study

A modified PLOP osteotomy approach was presented and a detailed study of the topographic and surgical anatomy of the PLOP was performed to suggest that the width of the upper side from the lateral to medial greater trochanter, depth of vertical osteotomy, and length of the posterior edge should be 4 cm.

A posterior trochanter spliting approach to the Hip Joint by maintaining all the advantages of the Posterior Approach with excellent visualization of the Hip joint was developed and used in patients with a fracture neck femur for insertion of an endoprosthesis.

Modified Posterior Approach to the Hip Joint

The Modification offers greater visibility and decreased blood loss to the Hip Joint, there by conferring greater stability posteriorly as compared with the conventional Posterior Approach as

Hueter’s Anterior Approach to the Hip Joint

The most significant progress all over the world in the evolution of total hip replacement is that the procedure can be done with less invasive techniques which allow the patient to recover and therefore mobilize early, to allow faster restoration of hip function.

Enhanced soft tissue repair using locking loop stitch after posterior approach for hip hemiarthroplasty.

Enhanced soft tissue repair with locking loop stitch is an effective way to reduce the incidence of dislocation after hip hemiarthroplasty using the posterior approach.

Dislocation after total hip arthroplasty. Causes and prevention.

A technique of positioning the acetabulum by bony landmarks of the pelvis in the standing position was developed using a standing lateral preoperative roentgenogram with the X-ray tube centered over the trochanter to prevent impingement and dislocation.

Posterior Approach to Total Hip Replacement Using Enhanced Posterior Soft Tissue Repair

The two senior authors (PMP, RP) independently began using an identical enhanced posterior soft tissue repair after total hip replacement through a posterior approach and found that a dislocation rate was reduced in patients before and after the enhanced closure.

It is postulated, but did not prove, that stretching of the pseudocapsule of the hip over time and extremes of motion may lessen soft-tissue constraints and allow for late dislocation.
