Angles, measurements in robotic-assisted THA match imaging data

January 28, 2015

Robotic-assisted total hip arthroplasty was found to be a close match for postoperative imaging results in predicting cup inclination and anteversion angles as well as leg-length and global offset changes, according to recently published data.

Researchers studied 61 patients who underwent robotic-assisted total hip arthroplasty (THA) using a mini-posterior approach between June 2011 and December 2012. Robotic and imaging data were evaluated by two blinded independent investigators. The primary factors of evaluation were cup inclination and anteversion angles, as well as leg-length and global offset changes.
