Lester S. Borden, MD
Often patients that have undergone total hip arthroplasty develop a persistent limp postoperatively. This can be attributed to the improper exposure and reattachment of the various primary and secondary anatomical structures that control the hip function. This causative factor, affecting muscle/tendon resting length, dramatically influences the normal kinematics of the hip and subsequently is responsible for the patient's persistent limp.
In this segment, Dr. Borden, Department Head, Section of Joint Replacement and Arthritis Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic focuses on the proper technique for incising the hip utilizing a midlateral approach.
In addition, one of the primary factors for femoral stem loosening and subsequent failure with modern ingrowth systems is the improper undersizing of the femoral implant. Dr. Borden graphically demonstrates the proper technique for interface needed to maximize ingrowth results.
