Brainlab software-guided hip surgery supports orthopedic surgeons in accurate component positioning and leg length and offset measurement
Malpositioning of implant components is one major cause of early joint dislocation, limited range of motion, early implant wear or leg length discrepancies¹,². Software-guided surgery helps to overcome those challenges by providing additional information for any surgical approach.
Brainlab software-guided surgery for hip replacement provides the optimal usage for various surgical approaches³.
Managing leg length and femoral offset is critical to successful total hip replacement surgery. Brainlab software for leg length and offset control is a measurement tool to precisely and consistently affect these variables without changes to the surgical routine.
The visual guidance of the navigation software for hip replacement offers several tools to help accurately place the artificial components and, therefore, has the potential to lower dislocation rates and improve implant longevity.
With Brainlab software-guided surgery for hip, the cup can intuitively be placed supported by live values for anteversion and inclination angles.
Navigation helps to enable surgeons to achieve the desired outcome established during preoperative planning, while allowing surgeons to react intraoperatively.
Furthermore, all data and results can be exported to reports for documentation and patient communication.
Brainlab universal instrumentation enables the orthopedic surgeon to easily, accurately and reproducibly align implant components during total hip replacement surgery.
