The latest achievement in the development of hip arthroplasty is the replacement of only the superficial tissues of the thigh with an artificial material.
In hip arthroplasty, this technique is increasingly used. With this type of arthroplasty, the proximal segment of the femur and the articular surface of the acetabulum are replaced with a thin cap (cap), i.e. only the sliding surfaces of the joint are replaced, while the bone tissue of the joint is preserved, remains maximally (optimally) functional.
This type of operation aims to preserve as much healthy bone tissue of the femur as possible, which is especially important in young patients with possible reoperations.
This model of arthroplasty can only be used for those patients who do not suffer from osteoporosis and, in addition, the femoral head should not be severely deformed by arthrosis.
The head of the hip endoprosthesis in this type of prosthesis coincides with the anatomical shape of the normal hip joint, which ensures minimal risk of dislocation after surgery.
