Aim: To analyse the functional and radiological outcome of acetabular version in total hip replacement by Modified Harris Hip Score and by using 3D computed tomography respectively
Background: Proper placement and orientation of the acetabular components of a total hip replacement are important for the prevention of dislocation, early component damage, and decreased postoperative range of motion
Introduction: The version and the inclination of the acetabular component in THR are important for movement and stability and to reduce wear of the component. The dislocation rate and movements of hip are majorly depending on acetabular cup version.
Design: Prospective and Retrospective study
Materials and Methods: Initially 20 patients of Total Hip Replacements done in Government Cuddalore Medical College Erstwhile Rajah Muthiah Medical College and Hospital will be studied prospectively and retrospectively during the study period August 2020 to November 2022.
Result: This study reveals that acetabular component placed within the safe zone described by Lewinnek resulted in an excellent functional outcome and reduced complications. Harris Hip Score was used for assessment of functional outcome
Conclusion: Acetabular component placement plays a significant role in excellent functional outcome and prevention of complications.
