BACKGROUND: Obesity is a severe clinical condition considered by many surgeons as a contraindication to the prosthetic hip. Many believe that the overweight and abundant fatty limit the surgeon during surgical maneuvers.
METHODS: In our study, we evaluate the clinical results of 11 obese patients operated with anterior minimal invasive surgery (AMIS) on an orthopedic extension table methodical and controlled with a follow-up of 1 year. The VAS, WOMAC and HHS have been assessed for 1 month, 3 months and one year after surgery.
RESULTS: The results of the WOMAC, HHS and VAS assessment highlight the statistical significance of results obtained at the 1- (P<0.0001) and 3-month (P<0.0001) follow-up points.
CONCLUSIONS: The AMIS method is a model surgery technique in the obese patients, who need a hip joint replacement that permits them walk again, and to improve the physical activity needed for weight loss.
