|Official Title:||Introduction of the Direct Anterior Approach to Hip Replacement Into a High Volume Community Hospital: Effect on Length of Stay and Hospital Cost|
|Primary Completion Date :||January 2014|
Direct Anterior Approach hip replacement
Single surgeon series of 105 consecutive patients who underwent hip replacement via the direct anterior approach on a fracture table
Posterior Approach Hip Replacement
105 consecutive patients previously operated on by a less invasive posterior approach at the same institution. These surgeries occurred prior to March, 2010.
- Length of Hospital Stay [ Time Frame: Retrospective review of hospital discharge records ]The length of stay and proportion of patients who went home in less than 3 days will be determined for each group.
