Safe zone total hip

Vincent Vinh Gia An, Brahman Shankar Sivakumar, Yadin David Levy, Jim Pierrepont, Warwick James Bruce
Correct component placement is of significant importance to ensure optimal outcomes in total hip arthroplasty (THA). Traditionally, the Lewinnek plane has been referenced as an adequate "safe zone", formed between the anterior superior iliac spines and public tubercles to optimize acetabular orientation. However, recent evidence shows that the positioning of this plane may vary due to the biomechanical relationship between the lumbar spine and hip. Therefore, the plane acquired intraoperatively may not accurately recreate the actual functional plane and acetabular orientation encountered outside of the intraoperative environment...

INTRODUCTION: It is critical to achieve both proper component positioning and intact muscle balance if satisfactory results are to be attained after total hip replacement (THR). There have been fewer studies on minimally invasive (MI) THR than standard approaches. The objective of this paper is to present the early clinical and radiological results of posterolateral MI THR. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The retrospective analysis of the records of patients undergoing posterolateral MI THR surgery between 2011 and 2014 was the basis of this study...

Background and purpose - Hip dislocation is one of the most common complications following total hip arthroplasty (THA). Several factors that affect dislocation have been identified, including acetabular cup positioning. Optimal values for cup inclination and anteversion are debatable. We performed a systematic review to describe the different methods for measuring cup placement, target zones for cup positioning, and the association between cup positioning and dislocation following primary THA. Methods - A systematic search of literature in the PubMed database was performed (January and February 2016) to identify articles that compared acetabular cup positioning and the risk of dislocation...

BACKGROUND: Surgical approach is known as a risk factor that influences cup malposition while performing total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, no study has been conducted comparing cup positioning between the supine direct anterior (DA) and supine direct lateral (DL) THA approaches. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) Is there a difference in acetabular cup positioning between supine DA and supine DL THA approaches? (2) Are there differences in complications based on acetabular cup positioning between the two approaches? METHODS: From 2012 to 2014, 186 patients who underwent primary THAs using DA approach were matched with 186 patients using DL approach by body mass index, age, and gender...

BACKGROUND: We performed periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) combined with intertrochanteric valgus osteotomy (TVO) to obtain better congruity for patients with acetabular dysplasia and nonspherical femoral head. These patients with PAO-combined TVO demonstrate long-term progression of osteoarthritis, thereby, needing conversion to total hip arthroplasty (THA) and is difficult due to morphological changes. The objective of the present study was to investigate outcomes of patients who underwent THA after PAO-combined TVO...

BACKGROUND: Recently, the importance of acetabular component positioning in the Lewinnek "safe zone" in preventing prosthetic dislocation following total hip arthroplasty (THA) has been questioned. The purpose of this study was to determine the proportion of acetabular components within the Lewinnek safe zone between primary and revision THAs that have sustained a dislocation vs matched controls without a dislocation event. METHODS: This was a retrospective, institutional review board-approved investigation of THAs performed at our institution or referred to our institution between 1997 and 2013...

It has been known the highly cross linked polyethylene (HXLPE) has an advantage of improved wear rate. However, the alteration in mechanical properties such as decreased tensile yield and fatigue strength make concerns about fragility of HXLPE. We experienced a case of HXLPE breakage. But, this case of liner breakage happened although patient belonged to normal BMI and proper acetabular cup position so called "safe zone" on radiographs. So, we report this case with reference review.

BACKGROUND: Acetabulum positioning affects dislocation rates, component impingement, bearing surface wear rates, and need for revision surgery. Novel techniques purport to improve the accuracy and precision of acetabular component position, but may have a significant learning curve. Our aim was to assess whether adopting robotic or fluoroscopic techniques improve acetabulum positioning compared to manual total hip arthroplasty (THA) during the learning curve. METHODS: Three types of THAs were compared in this retrospective cohort: (1) the first 100 fluoroscopically guided direct anterior THAs (fluoroscopic anterior [FA]) done by a surgeon learning the anterior approach, (2) the first 100 robotic-assisted posterior THAs done by a surgeon learning robotic-assisted surgery (robotic posterior [RP]), and (3) the last 100 manual posterior (MP) THAs done by each surgeon (200 THAs) before adoption of novel techniques...

Although prosthetic hip dislocation is a common reason for revision arthroplasty, few studies have comprehensively evaluated the radiographic factors that may lead to the need for revision. Therefore, the authors radiographically evaluated all prosthetic hip dislocations that were treated at one institution. They then specifically assessed those that required revision surgery. The authors found that the prosthetic center of rotation (pCOR) was located superolateral and inferolateral to the native COR (nCOR) in all patients...

INTRODUCTION: Prosthetic impingement and insufficient soft tissue tension are still the most important factors responsible for early dislocation after total hip arthroplasty. Optimal positioning of both prosthetic components, the stem and the socket, optimising their design and restoring individual hip biomechanics, are of the upmost importance in reducing the risk of impingement. This study describes the concept of the combined safe zone (cSafe-Zone) that provides guidelines for the optimal positioning of both components...

Implant positioning is one of the critical factors that influences postoperative outcome of total hip arthroplasty (THA). Malpositioning of the implant may lead to an increased risk of postoperative complications such as prosthetic impingement, dislocation, restricted range of motion, polyethylene wear, and loosening. In 2012, the intraoperative use of smartphone technology in THA for improved accuracy of acetabular cup placement was reported. The purpose of this study was to examine the accuracy of an iPhone/iPad-guided technique in positioning the acetabular cup in THA compared with the reference values obtained from the image-free navigation system in a cadaveric experiment...

BACKGROUND: Radiostereometry (RSA) measurements of early micromotion can predict later failure in hip and knee prostheses. In hip implants, RSA has been particularly helpful in the evaluation of composite-beam stem designs. The Spectron EF Primary stem (Smith & Nephew, London, UK) has shown inferior performance compared with its predecessors in both clinical studies and registry reports. Early RSA studies have shown somewhat greater subsidence for the Spectron EF Primary stem compared with the earlier Spectron EF, but still within boundaries considered to be safe...

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether postoperative combined anteversion (CA) can be kept within the safe zone while using cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA) using the operative technique which prepares the socket first for developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH), by estimating the anteversion of the metaphyseal fit stem using preoperative three-dimensional (3D) computerized planning and by adjusting the anteversion of the socket using a navigation system that considers CA. Our subjects were 65 patients (65 hips) that had undergone cementless THA for DDH that could be observed for 1 year or more...

BACKGROUND: There is purported improvement in component positioning and hip stability with the use of direct anterior approach (DAA) total hip arthroplasty (THA). We sought to determine if there is a difference in acetabular component position or dislocation frequency between DAA and posterior THA. METHODS: One arthroplasty fellowship-trained surgeon introduced DAA THA into his practice. From the initiation of DAA in 4/2012-8/2015, this comparative series resulted in 66 DAA THAs...

BACKGROUND: Minimising the risk of cup implantation outside the safe zone is among the objectives of navigation during total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, given the technical challenges raised by navigation when the patient is lying on the side, many surgeons still use the freehand technique. We conducted a randomised controlled trial to evaluate the new navigation system NAVEOS in the iliac plane, which is easily identified in the lateral decubitus position, with the objective of determining whether NAVEOS navigation decreased the frequency of cup implantation outside the safe zone compared to freehand cup positioning, without increasing the operative time or the frequency of complications...

BACKGROUND: Periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) is an effective treatment for preosteoarthritis and early osteoarthritis in young and active patients with hip dysplasia. However, conversion to total hip arthroplasty (THA) for failed PAO is difficult owing to morphologic changes. The objective of the present study was to investigate outcomes of patients who underwent THA for failed PAO. METHODS: We performed a case-control study. The participants were 48 patients (52 hips) who underwent THA after PAO (the osteotomy group); type of PAO was eccentric rotational acetabular osteotomy in 36 hips and rotational acetabular osteotomy in 16 hips...
