Studies indicate that OrthoGrid Systems' analog and digital technology, when used in a direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty (DAA THA), demonstrated an efficient method for consistent and accurate cup positioning and restoration of hip symmetry following DAA THA, with better surgical efficiency.
Cass Nakasone, M.D., noted that with cases using OrthoGrid's HipGrid® Drone and PhantomMSK™ Hip, known as manual gridding system (MGS) and digital gridding system (DGS) respectively, for DAA THA, "Both the Drone and Phantom showed consistent or improved hip abduction, offset, and leg length accuracy. Although the Drone appears to be slightly more accurate for abduction and offset, this is unlikely to be clinically significant, as there was no difference in the percentage of patients falling within the targeted safe zone. The Phantom provides this accuracy with reduced surgical time, which may be an added benefit for high volume arthroplasty surgeons."
"We know the importance of achieving desired anatomic alignment to surgeons and their patients, and we are pleased our intraoperative alignment technologies are playing a role in helping surgeons achieve consistent surgical results." - Edouard Saget, Co-CEO of OrthoGrid
