A Randomized Study of Approaches in Total Hip Arthroplasty
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||total hip replacement|
|Treatments||direct anterior approach, mini-posterior approach|
|Start date||January 2013|
|End date||July 2017|
|Trial size||116 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01613508, 12-001341|
The primary aim of the study is to compare the results of an established, successful procedure, which is total hip arthroplasty through a mini-posterior approach to a less studied - increasingly popular procedure, which is total hip replacement through the direct anterior approach utilizing the orthopedic table.
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
Activity monitors will be worn
time frame: Baseline to 1 year
