Introduction: The outcome of total hip and knee arthroplasty depends on the approach, type of implant, indication and applied implantation technique also precise positioning of the components. Inaccuracy may result in complaints, dysfunction, or early loosening of the prosthesis. The aim of the study was to compare different approaches, evaluation of benefits, the accuracy of implantation by navigated and conventional surgery. The results of 350 total hip and 630 total knee arthroplasties using Harris Hip Score and Knee Society Knee Score were followed up in Uzsoki Hospital focusing on benefits of approaches. The first 70 navigated arthroplasty made, at the Orthopaedic Department of the Semmelweis University was evaulated by the authors. Long standing a-p and side view X-ray pictures were taken to evaluate the position of the femoral and tibial components. The results obtained can demonstrate, that total hip and knee minimally invasive techniques benefit in the first 6 weeks, 3 months regarding function. Navigation can impove the accuracy of positioning of the components. Conclusion: The effect of minimally invasive techniques act on function and rehabilitation mainly in the first three months. Tthe correct positioning can cause longer survivorship of the prosthesis which must be proven by long term analyses.
