A tiered system using substantial clinical benefit and patient acceptable symptomatic state scores to evaluate 2-year outcomes of hip arthroscopy with the Hip Outcome Score
Journal of hip preservation surgery
There is no information to define variations in hip arthroscopy outcomes at 2-year follow-up using the Hip Outcome Score (HOS). To offer a tiered system using HOS absolute substantial clinical benefit (SCB) and patient acceptable symptomatic state (PASS) scores for 2-year hip arthroscopy outcome assessment. This was a retrospective review of patients having hip arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement and/or chondrolabral pathology. On initial assessment and 2 years (±2 months) post-operatively, subjects completed the HOS activity of daily living (ADL) and Sports subscales, categorical self-rating of function and visual analog scale for satisfaction with surgery. Receiver operator characteristic analysis identified absolute SCB and PASS HOS ADL and Sports subscale scores. Subjects consisted of 462 (70%) females and 196 (30%) males with a mean age of 35.3 years [standard deviation (SD) 13] and mean follow-up of 722 days (SD 29). SCB and PASS scores for the HOS ADL and Sports subscales were accurate in identifying those at a 'nearly normal' and 'normal' self- report of function and at least 75% and 100% levels of satisfaction (area under the curve >0.70). This study provides tiered SCB and PASS HOS scores to define variations in 2-year (±2 months) outcome after hip arthroscopy. HOS ADL subscale scores of 84 and 94 and Sports subscale scores of 61 and 87 were associated with a 'nearly normal' and 'normal' self-report of function, respectively. HOS ADL subscale scores of 86 and 94 and Sports subscale score of 74 and 87 were associated with being at least 75% and 100% satisfied with surgery, respectively. Level of evidence: III, retrospective comparative study.
