135 patients scheduled for minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty (THA) were randomized to either a navigated 'femur first' technique or conventional technique. The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the proportion of patients displaying CT-based range of motion necessary for activities of daily life (ADL) without prosthetic-bone or prosthetic-prosthetic impingement. Clinical out...
