Cup position and orientation using the TAL: Prof David Beverland
Version and inclination
Professor David Beverland
Orthopaedic Surgeon, Musgrave Park Hospital, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Professor David Beverland uses TAL to position his acetabular cup and shows how this technique helped reduce his dislocation rate in his hospital.
This series of animations help to understand how patient positioning on the table can affect the outcome off the table. Looking at how the pelvis and patient may move during the surgery, and by demonstrating that the patient is not always where you want them to be, Professor Beverland demonstrates the versatility of the TAL as a cup positioning guide.
