Patient-Specific Safe Zone Based on Daily Positions and Range of Motion

5 pagesPublished: September 26, 2020

Abstract

Cup orientation is a challenging step in total hip arthroplasty (THA), to ensure comfort of the patient and durability of the prosthesis. The safe zone defined by Lewinnek is commonly used for cup orientation, but it is nowadays being questioned because it is not patient-specific.
We propose to define a new safe zone for cup orientation, that considers patient-specific parameters such as the pelvic tilt and the range of motion (ROM) of the leg.
We developed a software that easily computes a unique safe zone from these param- eters in different daily positions, ensuring a cup orientation without risks of prosthetic impingement.

Keyphrases: Lewinnek, pelvic tilt, range of motion, Safe Zone, THA, total hip arthroplasty
