The relationship of the intrapelvic vasculature to the acetabulum. Implications in screw-fixation acetabular components.

Abstract

The use of screw-fixation acetabular components in total hip arthroplasty could increase the incidence of vascular injury because of the increased use of drills and screws placed into the acetabulum in close proximity to major vessels. Analysis of two illustrative case studies, anatomic specimen cross sections, and computed tomographic scans demonstrate… (More)
