The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of limb lengthening up to 20 mm after THA on symmetry of hip kinematics and kinetics during common activities of daily living. Twenty patients (age range 49–80 years) operated on with Link Lubinus II THA, with lateral access and a mean follow-up of 16 months, were assessed by gait analysis during level walking, stair ascending and descending. The time-distance, hip kinetics and kinematics values were statistically compared between the operated… CONTINUE READING
