In total hip arthroplasty (THR) cases, it can be technically challenging to achieve the correct inclination angle for the acetabular component. Commercial intra-operative navigation systems have been successfully used to precisely guide acetabular orientation ; however, these systems are costly, time consuming, and have a steep learning curve for new users . In an effort to simplify the procedure, McGann et al. have developed a laser-guided system to address the inclination angle . In preliminary clinical trials, this system has been used successfully, but its accuracy and repeatability have never been quantified.
