Abstract

Purpose of review: Minimal incision surgery (MIS) has received tremendous attention both in the press and in orthopedic communities. This review includes data from the most recent studies published in orthopedic journals or presented at national meetings. Recent findings: Significant controversies exist with regard to the efficacy and complications of MIS technique in total hip arthroplasty (THA). This review focuses primarily on the reported complications of MIS. Summary: Minimal incision surgery is in a state of evolution. There is evidence that rehabilitation and return of functional capacity are more accelerated following MIS in contrast to THA done using more conventional incisions. The complication rate, however, is greater. This is especially true with regard to calcar fractures.
