Abstract/Summary Aim: The purpose of this study was to determine if pain and disability associated with hip pathology improve following hip arthroscopy, and to determine if certain types of hip pathology lead to a more successful outcome following arthroscopy, as rated using patient administered questionnaires. Methods: Prior to undergoing hip arthroscopy, 15 patients (15 hips) filled out three questionnaires, Hip and Back Assessment questionnaire (HABAQ), modified Harris Hip Score (HHS) and the Oswestry Disability Questionnaire (OSW). Following surgery, subjects again filled out the three questionnaires at 6 week and 12 week postsurgery. Immediately following each arthroscopy, the surgeons completed a standardized form detailing the pathology found at arthroscopy. Results: No complications were reported at surgery. There was a statistically significant mean improvement across all three questionnaires, from baseline to 6 week follow up; HABAQ p=0.030, HHS p=0.010, OSW p=0.004. Whilst there was a further mean improvement from 6 week follow up to 12 week follow up, this was not statistically significant. Two patients did not improve or became worse than baseline at 12 weeks. There was no statistically significant difference between the mean change score from baseline to 6 week follow up determined from HABAQ and HHS, and the type of pathology found at surgery. Conclusion: In most cases, for patients with hip pathology, arthroscopy is a useful tool in relieving or reducing patient pain and disability. Owing to the small number of subjects enrolled in this study, this may account for the non-significant finding of change scores and pathology type.
