Researchers collected complete Harris Hip score data, including completed physician-reported and patient-reported outcome components, of 483 patients who had undergone either primary or revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) between April 2001 and July 2013. Researchers divided American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) score into low and high groups and divided BMI into four categories.
