The effect of gluteus maximus tenotomy in primary total hip arthroplasty with posterior approach: Kinematic analysis of hip extensor strength.

J Orthop Surg (Hong Kong) 2021 Jan-Apr;29(1):23094990211003349

Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, HSU Prof. Cemil Tascioglu City Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: The posterior approach (PA) is the most commonly used surgical approach for total hip arthroplasty (THA), but the proximity of the sciatic nerve may increase the likelihood of sciatic nerve injury (SNI). Gluteus maximus tenotomy can be performed to prevent SNI because tenotomy increases the distance between the femoral neck and sciatic nerve and prevents compression of the sciatic nerve by the gluteus maximus tendon (GMT) during hip movements. We aimed to kinematically compare the postoperative hip extensor forces of patients who have and have not undergone gluteus maximus tenotomy to determine whether there is a difference in hip extensor strength.
