“Short-term outcome and complication data from the state joint replacement registry demonstrate that total hip arthroplasty performed using either the direct anterior approach or posterior approach have no compelling advantage over each other, including no difference in the dislocation risk,” Joseph D. Maratt, MD, of the University of Michigan Health System, said in his presentation.… Read the Rest

We present the results of 228 consecutive Charnley low friction hip arthroplasties, performed in 193 patients, between July 1972 and December 1976…..Our survivorship results show a 10-year survival of 93% deteriorating to a 30-year survival of 73% (+/-6.1). T
Anterior Approach in THA Improves Outcomes by Joseph T. Moskal, MD 2011
…In 2009, a study comparing the direct anterior approach and the mini-posterior approach for THA was conducted. One hundred ninety-five THAs (182 consecutive patients) were performed by a single, highly experienced surgeon. The results demonstrated more rapid recovery of hip function and gait ability after THAs performed through an anterior approach as compared to a mini-posterior approach…
…There was no difference( in the complication rates compared to the posterior approach)…
…So, in 2009, I began using the direct anterior approach and now … Read the Rest
