    Background: Both minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and computer-assisted surgery (CAS) for total hip arthroplasty (THA) have gained popularity in recent years. We conducted a qualitative and systematic review to assess the effectiveness of MIS, CAS and computer-assisted MIS for THA. Methods: An...

    The use of a single mini-incision is the most common minimally invasive surgical technique for hip replacement. Either a posterior or an anterior approach can be used. An incision length of 10 centimeters has become the usual definition of a mini-incision, but some surgeons use 12 cm operation....
