Title:
Plain radiographs fail to reflect femoral offset in total hip arthroplasty. 
Abstract:
Successful biomechanical reconstruction is a major goal in total hip arthroplasty (THA). We measured leg length (LL), global (GO) and femoral offset (FO) change on anteroposterior pelvis radiographs and on three-dimensional computed-tomography (3D-CT) with fiducial landmarks after cementless THA on 18 hips of cadaveric specimens. Measurements on radiographs were performed twice by four examiners and showed high interobserver (mean CCC>=0.79) and intraobserver agreements (mean ICC>=0.88). Mean di...    »
