Alumina Ceramic-Ceramic Total Hip Arthroplasty using Computer-Assisted Surgical Navigation and a New Minimally Invasive Technique
Proper component positioning, preservation of the soft tissue surrounding the hip, and minimization of wear are three critical components for optimizing outcome following total hip arthroplasty. The current manuscript describes methods of ensuring proper component positioning using surgical navigation and a new tissue preserving minimally invasive surgical technique, both used in combination with alumina ceramic-ceramic total hip arthroplasty.
