Reliable anatomical landmarks for minimizing leg-length discrepancy during hip arthroplasty using the lateral transgluteal approach for femoral neck fracture.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to describe our experience of a preoperative templating technique, and to investigate the most reliable anatomical reference to minimize leg length discrepancy (LLD) during hip arthroplasty using the lateral transgluteal approach for femoral neck fractures. We hypothesized that the medial fracture tip and greater… (More)
