The article focuses on the achievement of lower-limb length equality and stability after total hip arthroplasty procedure. It presents the advantages and disadvantages of surgical approaches including the direct anterior approach with an average mean limb length discrepancy of 3.9 mm. It reveals that preoperative planning is required in achieving stability and limb length equality after total hip arthroplasty which include physical examination, radiographic evaluation, and templating.

    The article discusses several factors to consider in conducting total hip arthroplasty after failed fixation of hip fractures. It infers that revision to an arthroplasty after failed sliding hip screw fixation should be well-planned. Preoperative planning is crucial tio assure restoration of leg...
