interaction in dislocation of the total hip prosthesis.
Today, development of hip replacement surgery is not limited to efforts to improve the prostheses. Improvements also include surgical approaches that limit the surgical trauma to the soft tissue, thereby accelerating recovery and limiting the possibility of dislocation. Dr. Matta applauds this trend because it is the basis of the anterior approach for hip replacement described herein. Patients need to keep in mind that recovery means both not only recovery from the surgical procedure, but also time to recover from the condition they are in prior to surgery.
Patient Education – Anterior Approach THA - …
Surgeons at the Hip and Pelvis Institute performing anterior hip replacement have now achieved the initial goals of reducing dislocation, enhancing recovery, and increasing accuracy through a combined series of over 3,500 primary anterior hip replacements.
We have found in literature no report of an anterior dislocation of the hip associated with femoral neck fracture, pelvic retention of the head and ureteral fistula.

The anterior approach does not limit the patient’s and surgeon’s options regarding type of hip prosthesis. Hip prostheses that are implanted with or without cement are applicable as well as all modern bearing surfaces including ultra high density polyethylene, metal and ceramic. Surface replacement arthroplasty is also possible through the anterior approach.
The Pros and Cons of Two Approaches to Hip …
Following insertion of the final broach, the driving handle is removed. The broach is temporarily left in as a “trial” femoral prosthesis and its upper end is capped with a trial femoral head. The table repositions the leg to its normal position and the trial head is “reduced” into the acetabulum. Active X-ray control is now used for sizing. Side by side television monitors compare the X-ray image of the patient’s opposite hip to the operated hip. This comparison gives immediate information regarding equality of leg length and femoral offset (horizontal distance of the femur from the pelvis). The leg and hip are moved by the table to check for stability (resistance to dislocation). If the initial trial shows undesirable leg length, offset or stability adjustments are made.

The normal incision is about 4 inches but may vary (shorter or longer) according to a patient’s body size. Though small incisions are often considered desirable by patients, it should be kept in mind that the degree and type of tissue disturbance beneath the skin is a more important factor. Incisions of adequate length allow the necessary side-to-side separation of the incision without undue force. Too small an incision can be more traumatic to the tissues, particularly to muscles that can be damaged by stretching too hard. With the anterior approach the patient lies supine (on their back) during surgery. X-rays taken during surgery with a fluoroscope ensure correct position, sizing and fit of the artificial hip components, as well as correct leg length.

The fracture is subsequent to the dislocation and was caused by the continuing bending force of the femoral neck on the acetabular rim [2,5]. Like fracture dislocation of the shoulder, this type of injury requires prompt surgical treatment in order to extract the femoral head damaging surrounding soft tissues, to reconstruct the hip joint and to repair associated soft tissue injuries.

Another advantage of the anterior approach is that for patients who require bilateral hip replacement, this can be performed during a single operative session. With the patient in the supine position (as opposed to lateral with standard techniques) both hips are simultaneously prepared and then the hips replaced successively. The muscle preservation and absent post operative restrictions also makes bilateral replacement more possible. Patients often prefer the one hospitalization and one visit to the operating room over staged hospitalizations and procedures.
