The adverse consequences of impingement, dislocation, and implant wear have stimulated increasing interest in accurate component orientation in total hip arthroplasty and hip resurfacing. The aims of the present study were to define femoral and acetabular orientation in a cohort of patients with primary hip osteoarthritis and to determine whether the orientation of their native hip joints corresponded with established recommendations for implantation of prosthetic components.
