  • A METHOD OF INTRAOPERATIVE LIMB LENGTH MEASUREMENT IN TOTAL HIP-ARTHROPLASTY CLINICAL ORTHOPAEDICS AND RELATED RESEARCH Woolson, S. T., Harris, W. H. 1985: 207-210

    Abstract:

    Equalization of leg-length discrepancy during total hip arthroplasty is a major concern to both the patient and surgeon. A stable pelvic reference point must be established during surgery to determine leg-length changes. An accurate method of intraoperative leg-length measurement is presented to improve the surgeon's ability to determine the exact amount of limb lengthening or shortening occurring during total hip arthroplasty.
