The article reports on the results of research which was conducted in an effort to determine the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of minimal-incision total hip replacement (THR) compared with standard total hip replacement. Researchers examined several medical databases. They found that when compared with standard-incision THR, single-incision minimally invasive THR offers some perioperative advantages, including less blood loss, shorter operative time, and shorter length of stay in hospitals.

    Chemical thromboprophylaxis in total hip arthroplasty (THA) may increase surgical site bleeding. The drug dose and timing of such therapy is therefore important. We studied two cohorts of 298 and 301 patients undergoing THA. The first group received their first dose of dalteparin sodium 5000 IU...
