Abstract

The pre-operative planning of a hip arthroplasty entails the choice of the prosthetic hip model and of the position of both joint components with reference to bone. Assessing the impact of geometrical factors on the final hip range of motion (ROM) is not trivial, since it requires performing 3D evaluations. Nonetheless, it deserves to be studied since hip impingement and dislocation are still relevant complications in hip arthroplasty.This work pertains a numerical model for the assessment of the hip ROM in relation to cotyle position. External/internal rotation is considered as a benchmark, and multiple combinations of acetabular anteversion/inclination are considered.According to results, over two hundred different geometric configurations can be examined in few minutes, and the cotyle position can be so optimized with relevant benefits in term of hip ROM.
