Joint salvage surgery beneficial, defers arthroplasty in select patients

January 28, 2015

KOLOA, Hawaii — Femoroacetabular impingement surgery and developmental hip dysplasia joint salvage surgery provide improvement in pain and function, however, it is unknown whether these procedures will change natural history, according to a presenter here.

“Does joint salvage surgery work, or more importantly, does [femoroacetabular impingement] FAI surgery work? It depends on what your definition of ‘work’ is? It works if you consider pain relief for the majority [and] improvement of various validated outcomes scores for the majority [of patients], FAI surgery seems to work for both open and arthroscopy. It is unknown if it will defer arthroplasty. I do not think we will be able to say that for many years,” Robert T. Trousdale, MD, said.
