Patients who underwent primary hip arthroscopy experienced greater improvement in patient-reported outcome scores at 2-year follow-up compared with patients who underwent revision arthroscopy, according to recently presented data.
Morbidly obese patients who underwent aseptic revision total hip arthroplasty experienced similar complications, failures and clinical outcomes compared with nonobese patients, according to study results.
Carlen Reyes, M.D., Ph.D., from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in Spain, and colleagues conducted a population-based cohort study using primary care records for subjects aged ≥40 years who were without a diagnosis of OA on Jan. 1, 2006, and had body mass index (BMI) data available.
Effect of General Anesthesia on Preoperative Hip Range of Motion in Patients Undergoing Hip Arthroscopy
Hip ROM does not change to a clinically significant extent with induction of general anesthesia. Small increases in external rotation in patients with FAI or acetabular dysplasia are within the standard error for ROM measurements.
