Abstract

Background: The modified medial Stoppa approach is an alternative and new surgical approach to access to the internal pelvis and medial wall of the acetabulum. There is little information about the clinical anatomic specifications of exposure in the literature. In this study, the pertinent surgical anatomy that involved the modified medial Stoppa approach was further defined and the anatomic positions and variations of the structures seen in the surgical site were analyzed.
