MIS and the Demands on Bearing Couples
We started to tackle the issue of minimally invasive hip surgery in our clinic in March 2004. The first problem was to look for the ideal approach for performing minimally invasive hip arthroplasty, for alternative implants and for a reproducible procedure that could rapidly become routine practice. Based on the impressions gathered during numerous periods spent abroad, we undertook an attempt for our department to define minimal invasiveness in hip surgery. What we wanted in introducing this procedure into the routine of the department, in terms of both our demands and our expectations were the following: Definition: Minimally invasive means minimally traumatic and involves making the portal smaller and retention of all the muscle attachments in order to ensure immediate post-operative and final sufficient gait profile.
