Introduction  In Europe the minimized transgluteal (TG) and anterolateral (AL) approaches are increasingly preferred in hip arthroplasty (THA). Method  The present investigation determined which of these approaches causes the least muscle trauma. Forty patients who received a THA were enrolled in this prospective randomized study. Muscle trauma was quantified by perioperatively measuring the serum concentration of skeletal troponin I (sTnI). The Harris hip score (HHS) was determined before and 12 months after surgery. Results  It increased significantly in all patients without being different between the groups (AL, 48.2→83.6; TG, 50.8→85.9). Patients in the TG group had a higher sTnI than those in the AL group 24 h postoperatively (21.6 vs. 10.9 nmol/ml, p = 0.022). The AL approach results in a reduced muscle traumatization compared with the TG approach, without this being revealed by the HHS.
