Anterior Path® is an anterior, portal-assisted approach for hip replacement that utilizes a cannula to gain direct access to the acetabulum, offering direct visualization and in-line preparation of the acetabulum and femur.
The use of the cannula allows for a transverse incision to be made more superior and lateral, minimizing many challenges related to the femur and wound healing. The placement and orientation of the incision create excellent femoral exposure, alleviate challenges related to femoral preparation, and allow the use of any stem philosophy. The use of a portal to prepare the acetabulum allows direct visualization and in-line reaming and cup impaction.
