ICJR COLLECTIONS: The Acetabulum in Direct Anterior Approach THA
The increasing popularity of the direct anterior approach for total hip arthroplasty (THA) has triggered a corresponding increase in the need for education to help surgeons through the learning curve for the procedure – including how to access the acetabulum and femur in patients who are supine instead of in the lateral decubitus position for a posterior approach THA.
In this article, we’ve collected resources from the ICJR archives on acetabular exposure and cup positioning in patients undergoing THA by the direct anterior approach. These resources are from ICJR’s 8th Annual Direct Anterior Approach Hip Course, held last year in Houston under the direction of Course Chairs Stefan W. Kreuzer, MD, and Joseph T. Moskal, MD, FACS.
