In most hips with either preosteoarthritis or initial osteoarthritis, the progression of osteoarthritis after rotational acetabular osteotomy was not detected for at least 20 years, according to researchers’ findings.

Researchers performed 172 rotational acetabular osteotomies in 168 patients with acetabular dysplasia between June 1986 and August 1991. Clinical and radiographic findings were available for 93 hips, including 23 hips with preosteoarthritis (pre-OA), 29 with initial OA and 41 with advanced OA. Mean duration of follow-up was 23 years.
