Aim. The modern hip prosthetic surgery is characterized by minimally invasive approach, both surgical and in terms of bone stock preservation at acetabular and femoral side.
Methods. In this paper the the TOP-CFP (Link) system has been used, with a minimally invasive direct lateral approach which allows good exposure of anatomical sites and full respect of muscolo-tendinous structures.
Results. The Harris hip score from a preoperative score of 46 shifted to a mean score of 96 in the postoperative period (3 months).
Conclusion. The TOP-CFP system has all the characteristics of a last generation prosthesis system: the femoral neck biomechanics, a good primary stability, high percentage of successful results in the short and long-term have been confirmed by a over 25 years’ experience and the high number of implants carried out in many Italian and foreign centers.
