Hip range of motion after total hip arthroplasty has been shown to be dependent on prosthetic design and component placement. We hypothesized that bony anatomy would significantly affect range of motion. Computer models of a current generation hip arthroplasty design were virtually implanted in a model of pelvis and femur in various orientations ranging from 35 degrees to 55 degrees cup abduction, 0 degrees to 30 degrees cup anteversion, and 0 degrees to 30 degrees femoral anteversion. Four head sizes ranging from 22.2 to 32 mm and two neck sizes ranging from 10-mm and 12-mm diameter were tested. Range of motion was recorded as maximum flexion-extension, abduction-adduction, and axial rotation of the femur before any contact between prosthetic components or bone was detected. Bony impingement preceded component impingement in about 44% of all conditions tested, ranging from 66% in adduction to 22% in extension. Range of motion increased as head size increased. However, increasing head size also increased the propensity for bony impingement, which tended to reduce the beneficial effect of increased head size on range of motion. Reducing neck diameter had a greater effect on prosthetic impingement (mean, 3.5 degrees increase in range of motion) compared to bone impingement (mean, 1.9 degrees ). This model allowed for a clinically relevant assessment of range of motion after total hip arthroplasty and may also be used with patient-specific geometry [such as that obtained from preoperative computed tomography (CT) scans] for more accurate preoperative planning.

Analysis of optimal range of socket orientations in total hip arthroplasty with use of computer-aided design simulation.

J Orthop Res 1998 Jul;16(4):513-7

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Akita Red Cross Hospital, Akita City, Japan.

A three-dimensional computer-aided design model of a total hip replacement was used to study the effects of anteversion and abduction of the acetabular component and anteversion and varus-valgus angulation of the femoral component on the range of hip flexion and extension that could be obtained without component impingement. Impingement of the component was defined as impingement between the neck of the femoral component and the edge of the acetabular component. To achieve an angle of hip flexion greater than 90 degrees and an extension angle greater than 30 degrees without component impingement, the optimal angulations were found to be between 1 and 30 degrees of anteversion and 30 and 50 degrees of abduction of the acetabular component, as well as 10 degrees of anteversion of the femoral component.

Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, Scripps Clinic, La Jolla, California 92037, USA.

Background: Prosthetic impingement due to poor positioning can limit the range of motion of the hip after total hip arthroplasty. In this study, a computer model was used to determine the effects of the positions of the acetabular and femoral components and of varying head-neck ratios on impingement and range of motion.

Methods: A three-dimensional generic hip prosthesis with a hemispherical cup, a neck diameter of 12. Read More

Quantifying soft-tissue tension around the hip joint during total hip arthroplasty remains difficult. In this study, a three-dimensional computer-aided design model was developed to clarify how component position in total hip arthroplasty contributes to the primary cause of posterior dislocation in cases of flexion, adduction and internal rotation. To better understand the influences of anteversion angle of the acetabular component, its effects on the primary causes of dislocations and the range of motion were investigated. Read More

Impingement, both prosthetic and bony, precedes the vast majority of dislocations after total hip arthroplasty and may adversely impact component wear. Reconstructed computer hip models of 8 subjects were used to evaluate hip range of motion for activities of daily living (ADLs) associated with posterior instability and anterior instability. Variables examined included acetabular position, femoral offset, and head size. Read More
