Acetabular orientation affects the success of total hip arthroplasty. Computer-assisted navigation systems may reduce positional errors. Total hip arthroplasty results were analyzed using an imageless navigation system. We hypothesized that reliability and accuracy would improve. One hundred forty-nine total hip arthroplasties were performed using minimally invasive surgical techniques in 3 ...

The optimal approach for total hip arthroplasty is hotly debated. We analysed 121 consecutive patients who underwent primary total hip arthroplasty during the first three years of practice of a newly appointed consultant. Patients were analysed for pain scores (1-6), function scores (1-6) and satisfaction levels (1-5). All complications, during ...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Hip arthroplasty is a routine operation which relieves pain in patients with osteoarthritis. The role of physical therapy after hip arthroplasty was recognized, but the importance of preoperative physical therapy and education is still to be judged. The aim of this paper was to investigate the effect of short-term ...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Greater trochanteric (GT) bursitis is a common cause of hip pain. Previously, the etiology of the trochanteric pain syndrome was thought to be caused by inflammation of the subgluteus maximus bursa (i.e., bursitis). Recently, MRI and ultrasound studies have brought into serious doubt the idea that bursitis ...
