Reduction of the range of motion (ROM) until prosthetic impingement of a total hip replacement may lead to frequent impingement, subluxation and dislocation especially for patients with good hip movement. The ROM until prosthetic impingement can be calculated using the technical ROM (theta) and the cup and neck positions by a previously created mathematical formula. A larger (theta) with proper cup and neck positions results in a larger ROM. However there was only one paper written in English… CONTINUE READING
