As published in the North American prosthetics journal “Journal of Arthroplasty”, randomized comparative studies on the anterior versus posterior approach in hip prosthesis implantation do not show any significant difference either in the first year or in the second after the implantation of the prosthesis. prosthesis. On the other hand, it does depend on the experience of the surgeon.
If we add to this that the superior approach, which is the mini-invasive advance of the posterior approach, does not cause tendinomuscular damage, the result is more immediate.
The superior approaches can be the Superpath and the DSA, both used by the hip unit for years as a reference center in minimally invasive surgery by all its members.
From the Hip Unit we recommend the following video, which shows the procedure of the Superpath technique. You can see the video by clicking here.
