Complication Rates after Hip Arthroscopy Study 2013
« on: November 15, 2013, 11:36:16 PM »

Dr. Larson and his colleagues recently updated results of a prospective, multicenter study and presented their findings at the 2013 annual meeting of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM)...

Between January 2011 and November 2012, 1,026 patients (507 males and 519 females) underwent arthroscopic hip procedures at the three institutions involved in the study. Patients had a mean age of 31.2 years (range: 12 years - 73 years)...

...Researchers found no difference in the rate of complications between males and females, or between primary and repeat arthroscopic patients. They also noted no difference between complications after labral repair and those after debridement. The patient's body mass index had no effect on complication rate...

"The overall complication rate after hip arthroscopy was 6.9 percent," reported Dr. Larson, "which was higher than previously reported in the literature. This rate of complications is in line with complication rates after open surgical dislocation using the same classification system."
