X-Guide-hip

  • Use For Hip Replacements*

Accurate planning of hip replacement surgery is essential to assure that the correct implants are available and to help plan the reproduction of limb length and offset. The X-Guide™ aligns the pelvis and projects a radio-opaque ruler that is recorded on the x-ray medium.

The X-Guide™ is placed anteriorly on the patient’s pelvis with the guide’s feet over the symphysis pubis and both anterior ileac spines. Using the x-ray alignment light (usually laser lights) the crosses on the X-Guide™ are used to align the pelvis.
