Introduction: From all deceases and injuries of femur, most surgical, medical, so-cial and economical difficulties and problems are created by deceases and fractures of femur neck. Aim of the paper: Aims of this research lie in the value of surgical approach (Hueter, Mooro and Gibson’s) when anchoring hip endoprosthesis. The following parameters were analyzed: Harris Hip Score before and after the surgery, the length of the surgical incision, duration of the surgery, the amount of transfu-sion used, post-surgery time of the first movement to the upright position and full weight bearing. Materials and methods: At the Orthopedic clinic in Travnik in the period from January 1st 2005 to December 31st 2009, 136 hip prosthesis were implanted. Out of that number, 56 hip prosthesis were implanted using Moor ap-proach, 34 using Hueter approach and 46 patients were exposed to postero lateral (Gibson’s) approach. All patients were treated in the same manner, operated by the same surgery team. Results: Hueter approach has the highest quality of surgical treatment as none of the patients had the value of the score of surgical treatment below 8. Using Hueter’s approach 16 patients had the value of the score of quality of the surgical treatment between 8 and 10, whereas 18 patients had the score of quality of surgical treatment above 10. The second quality surgical treatment is Gibson’s posteolateral approach at which 29 patients had the score of quality surgical treat-ment below 8, and 17 patients had the quality surgical treatment between 8 and 10. The worst quality of surgical treatment is Moor’s approach because all 56 patients had the quality surgical treatment below 8. Discussion: Implantation of total en-doprosthesis of dysplastic hip with adults is a demanding orthopedic surgery. The surgery of implanted hip as well as endoprosthetic materials have both improved at the satisfaction of both the patients and the surgeons. Excellent and extraordinary results were achieved over the time have become a standard. In spite of that huge surgery wound and long recovery have motivated surgeons to improve the surgery techniques. Conclusion: With proper instruments and endoprosthesis, Hueter ap-proach has advantages compared to Gibson and Moor’s approach of implantation of endoprosthesis of aligned hip.
