Our Midterm Results of the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing With and Without Navigation

El Hachmi, Mohamed et al.

We reviewed 148 consecutive hip resurfacings in order to assess the clinical outcomes of the BHR at midterm follow-up and to compare the accuracy of the navigation in the positioning of femoral component. We retrospectively analyzed 85 hips using the conventional jig to implant the femoral component and we prospectively followed 63 hips operated on by navigation. At a mean follow-up of 50.54 months, the Harris hip score improved significantly from 44.66 preoperatively to 98.45 postoperatively without any differences between the groups. Radiologically, we classic navigated group. Our clinical outcomes are excellent at midterm follow-up and the navigation definitely improves the implant position in both planes.
