BACKGROUND: To evaluate the effectiveness of minimally invasive surgery total hip arthroplasty (THA) using the two-incision technique as described by Mears.
METHODS: From January 2003 to December 2006, sixty-four patients underwent total hip arthroplasty using the one-incision (group I) and two-incision (group II) technique by one surgeon. There were 34 hips in group I and 30 hips in group II. There was no difference in age, gender, and causes of THA between the two groups. We evaluated the operation time, bleeding amount, incision length, ambulation, hospital stay, and complications between the two groups.
RESULTS: There was no difference in the bleeding amount between the two groups. Operation time was longer in the two-incision group than in the one-incision group. Operation time of the two-incision technique could be reduced after 15 cases. Patients started ambulation after surgery earlier in group II than group I, and the hospital stay was shorter in group II than in group I. There was no difference in clinical results between the two groups. There was no difference in component position of the acetabular cup and femoral stem between the two groups. Intraoperative periprosthetic fracture occurred in four cases (13.3%) in group II.
CONCLUSIONS: Two-incision THA has the advantage of rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay. However, longer operation time and a high complication rate compared to one-incision are problems that need to be solved in the two-incision technique.
