Anterior Hip Replacement
Hana® Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgery Table
The Anterior Approach surgery procedure for hip replacement is a technique that minimizes the pain and time from surgery to recovery. Using the Hana® Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgery Table, the Anterior Approach allows the surgeon to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the lateral (side) or the posterior (back) approach. In this way, the surgeon can simply work through the natural interval between the muscles. The most important muscles for hip function, the gluteal muscles that attach to the pelvis and femur, are left undisturbed and therefore these do not require a healing process.
With its unique capability to position the leg, the Hana® table enables the surgeon to replace the hip through a single incision, without detachment of muscle from the pelvis or femur. The table allows for safe hyperextension, adduction, and external rotation of the leg for femoral component placement – a positioning option not possible with conventional tables. The Hana® table incorporates a patented femoral lift and support system enhancing femoral exposure for improved component placement. The lack of disturbance to the lateral and posterior soft tissues provides immediate stability of the hip after surgery.
Hana® Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgery Table is the only surgical table designed exclusively for hip and knee arthroplasty.
While the Hana® table is an innovative device for the Anterior Approach, it is also an excellent resource for many orthopedic surgical procedures including femur fractures (supine or lateral positions), tibia fractures, hip pinnings, hip scopes, and total knee arthroplasties.
About Mizuho OSI
Mizuho OSI manufactures the Hana® Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgery Table used primarily in Anterior Approach hip replacement surgery. The merits of this procedure include: 1) less muscle trauma, 2) shorter hospital stay, 3) smaller incision (3 to 5 inches versus 10 to 12 inches), and 4) faster recovery (2 to 8 weeks versus 2 to 4 months). Additional benefits of this procedure may include more rapid return to normal activities, reduced pain, reduced blood loss, reduced tissue healing required, reduced risk of dislocation, more accurate leg length control, and more accurate implant positioning.
