How effective is primary hip arthroscopic labral repair at mid-term follow-up?

A study published online in The American Journal of Sports Medicine looks at mid-term outcomes for patients who have undergone primary hip arthroscopic labral repair. 

The authors conducted a cohort study of 303 patients (mean age 32 years). At mean 5.7-year follow-up, they found overall mean improvement in visual analog scale of 3.5 points, modified Harris Hip Score (mHHS) of 20.1 points, and Hip Outcome Score–Sports-Specific Subscale (HOS-SSS) of 29.3 points. The authors note that preoperative Tönnis grade 2 change, body mass index >30 kg/m2, and age >35 years at time of surgery were associated with significantly decreased mHHS and HOS-SSS scores at final follow-up. Overall, 37 patients (12.2 percent) underwent revision arthroscopic surgery, and 12 (4.0 percent) underwent periacetabular osteotomy, resurfacing, or total hip arthroplasty during the study period. Learn more...
