Though Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) surgery is a very common procedure, it remains a challenging surgery. Identifying pre-operative risks and minimizing post-operative complications is crucial for improving results and patient reported outcome measures.
hipEOS 3D surgical simulation and planning software is used to plan primary, total hip arthroplasties. The planning begins with an automatic proposal for the size and position of the stem and cup based on the surgeon’s preferred implants and the patient’s unique anatomy. The patient-specific plan can be adjusted by the physician with immediate feedback on how changes affect relevant clinical parameters.
Thanks to the full body, weight-bearing standing and seated 2D/3D EOS images, hipEOS can be used to anticipate the results of the surgical strategy on implant range of motion (ROM), leg length discrepancies, femoral offset and torsion which are key criteria for successful total hip arthroplasties.
