Design Parameter to Improve Range of Motion (ROM) in Total Hip Arthroplasty
Dislocation represents, after aseptic loosening, the second most frequent complication  in total hip arthroplasty (THA) with an occurrence of 2–3% following a primary THA and 10% in revision arthroplasties . Factors contributing to impingement and dislocation include soft tissue, bone components, orientation of the prosthesis, design of the implants .
