Objevtive: To investigate if there was any difference between the anterolateral and the posterior approach concerning physical function in the lower extremity, patient satisfaction, pain at rest and on motion, and Trendelenburg sign 12 months after total hip arthroplasty. Methods: A quasi-experimental, retrospective, and consecutive study, including 50 patients with osteoarthritis undergoing primary, total hip and arthropasty. Patients were evaluated with the Functional Assesment Syste for Lower Extremity Dusfunction (FAS), visual analogue scale (VAS), a subjective estimation of limp, and the Trendelenbur test. Results: There were no significant differences between groups accomplished very good function in the lower extremity evaluated with the FAS. Patients with the posterior approach showed a significantly higher degree of patient satisfaction, less bodily pain, and lower frequence of limp as compared to the group that underwent the anterolateral approach. Conclusions: It may be possible to achieve better results for patients with osteoarthritis havin undergone total hip arthroplasy with the anterolaterial approach by changing post-operative regimen and provide the patients with physical therapy after submission.
