With intellijoint HIP’s 3D mini-optical navigation technology, surgeons are able to obtain vital intraoperative measurements during hip replacement surgery which assists with accurate size selection, positioning and alignment of implants16.
During a revision total hip replacement, Intellijoint HIP helps the surgeon pin point the cause of symptoms and determine which implants need to be removed or modified. Intraoperative measurements guide the surgeon in accurately positioning the new implants. Intellijoint HIP can assist in bone preservation where possible and reduced the risk of re-revision caused by dislocation 36.
There are three critical measurements related to the selection, positioning and alignment of the new artificial hip components including:
The angle of the artificial cup that is fastened to your pelvis is very important.
Leg length discrepancy (LLD) is a condition where one leg ends up either shorter or longer than the other following your hip replacement surgery
It is critical to maintain this distance after inserting your new hip components to ensure a successful hip replacement surgery.
