Minimally invasive surgery has become a popular method of total hip arthroplasty. This study reviewed the literature to determine the number and quality of scientific publications analyzing different types of minimally invasive surgery approaches. The miniposterior approach has been studied the most and to our knowledge is the only approach with good quality randomized control study evidence. The overall length of follow-up and quality of reports for minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty is low.
