dc.description.abstractWe evaluated 60 limbs in 30 patients with unilateral primary total hip arthroplasty and nondiseased contralateral hip. The ratio of femoral offset (FO) to the body weight lever arm (FO ratio) and the ratio of the height of hip center (HC) to pelvic height (HC ratio) were calculated on radiographs. Isometric hip abductor strength was measured by dynamometer. The ratio of normalized strength of the reconstructed side to that of the nonoperated side was calculated (strength ratio). The FO ratio correlated positively to the strength ratio (r = 0.491; P =. 0059), whereas the HC ratio correlated negatively (r = -0.568; P =. 0011). Slight increase of FO ratio along with restoration of normal hip joint center erring on the side of slight inferomedial cup positioning appeared to optimize hip abductor function. © 2005 Elsevier Inc.
