Arthroscopy improved functional scores among dysplastic hip morphologies

April 27, 2015

LOS ANGELES — Although patients with mild to borderline dysplastic hip morphologies experienced improved functional scores after arthroscopy, they had inferior good to excellent scores and higher failure rates compared with a femoroacetabular impingement cohort, according to a presenter here.

“Functional scores improved post arthroscopy in hips with mild to borderline dysplastic morphologies, but when compared to the [femoroacetabular impingement] FAI cohort, good to excellent results were inferior and failure rates were higher,” James Ross, MD, said in his presentation at the Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting.
