A Randomised Multi-centre Study to Compare the Short-term Outcomes of Minimally Invasive and Conventional Surgery in Primary Total Hip Replacement
Randomised, Prospective, Post-Market Surveillance Study Comparing the Outcomes of Minimally Invasive and Conventional Surgical Procedures in Subjects Requiring Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty for Osteoarthritis.
The purpose of this study is to compare the short-term outcomes of two surgical techniques, minimally invasive and conventional, when used in the treatment of patients with hip joint disease requiring a total hip replacement. Patients who enter the study will be randomly allocated to undergo surgery using the minimally invasive or conventional surgical technique and will be evaluated at regular intervals following hip surgery using patient, clinical and x-ray assessments with a focus on short term rehabilitation.
