Minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty using Hueter’s direct anterior approach

European journal of orthopaedic surgery & traumatology : orthopedie traumatologie | 8 Mar 2018

P Moreau
Abstract
For many years the Hueter anterior approach has been performed exclusively in Paris. Robert and Jean Judet described it for the first time in 1950 in relation to total hip arthroplasty. They started using an orthopaedic surgery table in 1985. The approach was only taught within the capital’s orthopaedic units and was relatively unknown before. In the last 10 years there has been widespread renewed interest in this approach which preserves the muscles. The technique is described in detail with its tricks and risks. It appeals to the surgeon in its minimally invasive form and provides particulary effective treatment for the patient.
