Digital templating facilitates accurate leg length correction in total hip arthroplasty
Acta Orthopaedica Belgica, 06/26/2012
JAssim SS et al. – Templating for total hip arthroplasty (THA) was significantly accurate in predicting the required femoral and acetabular implant sizes. In addition, the correction of pre–operative leg length discrepancy (LLD) was accurately performed, as evidenced by measurement on post–operative films. The results of this study support the pre–operative digital templating of radiographs in total hip arthroplasty.
