Evolution of Intraoperative Navigation

Much research and development has been performed regarding the utilization of existing and new technology for hip arthroscopy. Intraoperative navigation systems have been developed to aid surgeons in determining the adequacy of bony resection. Traditionally, adequacy of bony resection was determined through traditional intraoperative fluoroscopy. These new intraoperative systems not only provide intraoperative feedback, but allow for the generation of post-operative reports, which can be given to patients. These systems use a combination of intra-operative images to generate a virtual three-dimensional representation of the femoral head, and calculates a live alpha angle for perfect resection.
