A standard posterior approach was performed in 5 fresh frozen cadaveric limbs. An anterior incision was then used to measure the distance of the femoral neurovascular structures to the anterior capsule. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of 11 hips was also analyzed to validate our cadaveric method. Cadaveric results demonstrated that before dislocation the femoral artery and vein were closest to the anterior capsule (mean distance, 21 mm), and the femoral nerve was the furthest away (mean… CONTINUE READING
