      Abstract: There is a sad feature about scientific publishing; not all papers published are ever cited. Can you imagine, spending 2 years undertaking a study and then no one ever acknowledges your effort? Estimates vary but some citation analyses suggest that 90% of academic papers are never cited and 50% are never read by anyone other than the authors, reviewers and a journal’s publication team [1]. Such a finding clearly brings into question the impact factor, as a journal’s impact can be influenced by relatively few papers. To have your paper published in a high-impact-factor journal does not, alas, mean that your own paper contributed to that high impact.

  • Return to running after arthroscopic hip surgery: literature review and
           proposal of a physical therapy protocol

    • Authors: Kraeutler MJ; Anderson J, Chahla J, et al.
      First page: 121
      Abstract: The number of hip arthroscopy procedures has significantly increased in the last several years, thereby necessitating individualized rehabilitation protocols for patients following hip arthroscopy. The purpose of this article is to review the literature on rehabilitation protocols for patients following hip arthroscopy and to describe a new protocol specifically designed for patients to return to running following hip arthroscopy. A search of PubMed was performed through October 2016 to locate studies of rehabilitation protocols for patients wishing to return to sport/general activity following hip arthroscopy. Patients at our institution who desired to return to running following hip arthroscopy underwent a set of return to running guidelines which are based on goal achievement within a three-phase system that begins with a walking program and finishes with return to distance running. Rehabilitation protocols for patients following hip arthroscopy frequently use a four-phase system in which Phase I focuses on regaining hip range of motion and protection of surgically repaired tissues, and Phase IV involves a pain-free return to sports. Rehabilitation protocols vary in timing in that some include a timeline with each phase taking a certain number of weeks while others are based on goal achievement. There is an overall lack of published outcomes based on patients adhering to various post-hip arthroscopy rehabilitation protocols.

  • Arthroscopic acetabuloplasty without labral detachment for focal
           pincer-type impingement: a minimum 2-year follow-up

    • Authors: Comba FM; Slullitel PA, Bronenberg P, et al.
      First page: 145
      Abstract: In order to access and resect the acetabular rim, arthroscopic acetabuloplasty was described with labral detachment. When the chondrolabral junction remains intact, acetabuloplasty and labral refixation can be performed maintaining an unharmed labrum. We aimed to evaluate the outcome of a group of patients treated with arthroscopic acetabuloplasty without labral detachment. During the study period, we retrospectively analysed 44 patients with pincer-type o combined impingement and an intact chondroblabral junction, with an average follow-up of 32 months (range: 27–38). We excluded patients with isolated CAM-type impingement and previous hip pathology. Radiographs were analysed to define impingement and classify grade of osteoarthritis. Clinical evaluation consisted of pre-operative and post-operative modified Harris hip score (mHHS) and WOMAC as well as post-operative visual analogue scale (VAS) of pain and satisfaction. Reoperations were considered surgical failures for purposes of survival analysis. Mean mHHS changed from 51.06 (SD 4.81) pre-operatively to 84.97 (SD 12.79) post-operatively. Pre-operative WOMAC was 29.18 (SD 8) and post-operative, 13.10 (SD 11). Post-operative VAS was 7.5 and 2.27 for satisfaction and pain, respectively. When comparing patients with Tönnis 0 to those with Tönnis 1, the former showed better results regarding post-operative mHHS (89.9 s versus 77.85, P = 0.03), pain VAS (1.5 versus 6.3, P = 0.03) and satisfaction VAS (8.2 versus 6.3, P = 0.01). Survival was 100% at 24 months and 76% at 40 months (95% CI: 35–98%). Arthroscopic acetabuloplasty without labral detachment achieved good clinical outcomes. Slight degenerative changes on radiographs correlated with poorer clinical outcomes.

  • Abnormal femoral antetorsion—a subtrochanteric deformity

    • Authors: Waisbrod G; Schiebel F, Beck M.
      First page: 153
      Abstract: Femoral rotational malalignment is associated with pain and functional disability and may be a contributing factor to hip impingement as well as to instability. In general, the deformity can be addressed surgically by rotational osteotomy. However, the anatomic location of the deformity is debated. The goal of the present study was to narrow down the anatomic site of deformity using the lesser trochanter (LT) as an additional landmark. One hundred and eight patients underwent computer tomography (CT)-based rotational analysis of their lower extremities. Femoral torsion (FT) and LT torsion (LTT) were measured. The combined angle (CoA) between FT and LTT was calculated. Statistical evaluation was done by multiple regression analysis. Ninety-seven extremities were examined for FT and LTT. Average age was 41 years (SD = 16.9) with a range of 18–85 years. Mean values were 20° for FT (SD = 12.2) and −16° for LTT (SD = 11.3). Mean CoA was 37.2 (SD = 8.7). Statistical analysis reveals a strong linear relationship between FT and LTT (y=31+0.74x) and a weaker relationship between FT and CoA (y=31+0.24x). This study identifies the LT as a reliable landmark and shows a strong linear relationship between the orientation of the LT and the overall torsion of the femur below and above the LT with about two-thirds of torsional changes occurring distal to it. These results provide a considerable indication for a subtrochanteric osteotomy to address correction of femoral rotational deformity at its anatomical origin.Level of Evidence: Level III, observational study.

  • Mesenchymal stem cell therapy in the treatment of hip osteoarthritis

    • Authors: Mardones R; Jofré CM, Tobar LL, et al.
      First page: 159
      Abstract: This study was performed to investigate the safety and efficacy of the intra-articular infusion of ex vivo expanded autologous bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSC) to a cohort of patients with articular cartilage defects in the hip. The above rationale is sustained by the notion that MSCs express a chondrocyte differential potential and produce extracellular matrix molecules as well as regulatory signals, that may well contribute to cure the function of the damaged hip joint. A cohort of 10 patients with functional and radiological evidences of hip osteoarthritis, either in one or both legs, was included in the study. BM-MSC (the cell product) were prepared and infused into the damaged articulation(s) of each patient (60 × 106 cells in 3 weekly/doses). Before and after completion of the cell infusion scheme, patients were evaluated (hip scores for pain, stiffness, physical function, range of motion), to assess whether the infusion of the respective cell product was beneficial. The intra-articular injection of three consecutive weekly doses of ex vivo expanded autologous BM-MSC to patients with articular cartilage defects in the hip and proved to be a safe and clinically effective treatment in the restoration of hip function and range of motion. In addition, the statistical significance of the above data is in line with the observation that the radiographic scores (Tönnis Classification of Osteoarthritis) of the damaged leg(s) remained without variation in 9 out of 10 patients, after the administration of the cell product.

  • Outcomes of heterotopic ossification excision following revision hip
           arthroscopy

    • Authors: Redmond JM; Keegan MA, Gupta A, et al.
      First page: 164
      Abstract: This study reviewed pain and outcome scores of patients undergoing revision surgery with heterotopic ossification (HO) excision following previous hip arthroscopy. The aim was to determine if performing the excision arthroscopically improved clinical outcomes. Data were prospectively collected and retrospectively reviewed in patients who had HO removed arthroscopically between February 2008 and 2014. Four patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures were collected: Modified Harris Hip Score (mHHS), Non-Arthritis Hip Score (NAHS), Hip Outcome Score-Activity of Daily Living (HOS-ADL) and Sport-Specific (HOS-SS) subscales. Minimum 1.5 year follow-up from index procedure was available for 23 patients (mean age = 38.6 years). Of the 23 patients who had revision surgery and HO removal, 19 (83%) were available for follow-up. Prior to revision, the average mHHS was 53.4, HOS-ADL 51.4, HOS-SS 24.5, NAHS 50.3 and VAS 6.7. Following revision with HO excision, each score had improved with an average mHHS of 73.62, HOS-ADL of 68.88, HOS SS of 58.51, NAHS of 70.83 and VAS of 4.33. Overall, mHHS increased by 20.26 points (P < 0.001), HOS-ADL increased by 17.48 points (P = 0.023), HOS-SS increased by 34.03 points (P < 0.001), NAHS increased by 20.55 points (P = 0.001) and VAS decreased by 2.38 points (P < 0.001). Patients undergoing revision hip surgery with HO excision demonstrated improved outcome scores and pain resolution; however, few patients achieved a good or excellent result. Revision hip surgery with HO excision should be approached cautiously because of the modest results in this patient group.

  • Danish Hip Arthroscopy Registry (DHAR): the outcome of patients with
           femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)

    • Authors: Lund B; Mygind-Klavsen B, Grønbech Nielsen T, et al.
      First page: 170
      Abstract: The Danish Hip Arthroscopy Registry (DHAR) was initiated in January 2012 as a web-based prospective registry. The purpose of this study was to evaluate and report the first registry based outcome data of a national population with radiological and clinical femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) undergoing hip arthroscopic treatment. Our primary hypothesis was that patients undergoing hip arthroscopy would improve significantly in pain, quality of life and sports related outcome measurements in Patient Related Outcome Measures (PROM). Peri-operative data and Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROM) data from DHAR between January 2012 and November 2015 were extracted. Radiological pincer-type FAI was defined as LCE > 35° and cam FAI as alpha-angle > 55°. These data were combined with FAI surgical data such as osteochondroplasty and labral repair or resection. PROMs consisting of HAGOS, EQ-5 D, HSAS and NRS pain scores were submitted online by the patients pre-operatively and at 1 and 2-years follow-up. 2054 FAI procedures in 1835 patients were included in this study (219 patients had bilateral procedures performed). HAGOS demonstrated significant improvement in all subscales at follow up. EQ-5 D demonstrated improvement after 1 and 2 years from 0.66 pre-op to 0.78 at 2 years. HSAS improved significantly from 2.5 to 3.3. Pain score data demonstrated improvement in NRS-rest 39 to 17 and NRS Walk 49 to 22 at follow-up. We conclude that patients with FAI undergoing hip arthroscopy experience improvement in pain, quality of life and also in function and sports related outcome measures during the first 2 years after surgery.

  • The effects of hip abduction on sciatic nerve biomechanics during terminal
           hip flexion

    • Authors: Martin H; Khoury AN, Schroder R, et al.
      First page: 178
      Abstract: Terminal hip flexion contributes to increased strain in peripheral nerves at the level of the hip joint. The effects of hip abduction and femoral version on sciatic nerve biomechanics are not well understood. A decrease in sciatic nerve strain will be observed during terminal hip flexion and hip abduction, independent of femoral version. Six un-embalmed human cadavers were utilized. Three Differential Variable Reluctance Transducers (DVRTs) sensors were placed on the sciatic nerve while the leg was flexed to 70° with a combination of − 10°, 0°, 20° and 40° adduction/abduction. DVRT placement included: (i) under piriformis, (ii) immediately distal to the gemelli/obturator, (iii) four centimeters distal to sensor two. A de-rotational osteotomy to decrease femoral version 10° was performed, and sciatic nerve strain was measured by the same procedure. Data were analyzed with three-way analysis of variance and Bonferroni post-hoc analysis to identify differences in the mean values of sciatic nerve strain between native and decreased version state, hip abduction angle and DVRT sensor location. Significant main effects were observed for femoral version (P = 0.04) and DVRT sensor location (P = 0.01). Sciatic nerve strain decreased during terminal hip flexion and abduction in the decreased version state. An 84.23% decrease in sciatic nerve strain was observed during hip abduction from neutral to 40° in the presence of decreased version at terminal hip flexion. The results obtained from this study confirm the role of decreased femoral version and hip abduction at terminal hip flexion to decrease the strain in the sciatic nerve.

  • The reliability of commonly used arthroscopic classifications of
           ligamentum teres pathology

    • Authors: Devitt BM; Smith B, Stapf R, et al.
      First page: 187
      Abstract: The importance of the ligamentum teres (LT) in the hip is increasingly being recognized. However, the incidence of LT tears in the literature is extremely variable. Although classification systems exist their reliability in classifying LT pathology arthroscopically has not been well defined. To determine the inter- and intra-observer reliability of two existing classifications systems for the diagnosis of LT pathology at hip arthroscopy. Second, to identify key pathological findings currently not included. Four experienced hip-arthroscopists reviewed 40 standardized arthroscopic videos. Arthroscopic findings of the LT were classified using the Gray and Villar (G&V) and descriptive classification (DC). Reviewers were asked to record other relevant pathology encountered. Inter- and intra-observer reliability was defined using Fleiss-Kappa and Cohen-Kappa statistics. Both classifications demonstrated fair inter-observer reliability. The intra-observer reliability for G&V was moderate-to-substantial and for DC was slight-to-moderate. An absolute agreement rate of 10% (G&V) and 37.5% (DC) was found. Differentiation between normal, and partial or low-grade tears was a common source of disagreement. The prevalence of LT pathology was 90%. Synovitis was the most common diagnostic finding that was not included in either classification system used in this study. Arthroscopic classification of LT pathology using the G&V and the DC demonstrated only fair inter-observer reliability. The major discrepancy in interpretation was between normal, and partial or low-grade tears. The presence of synovitis was not in either classification but was considered an important arthroscopic finding. Thorough arthroscopic scrutiny reveals the prevalence of LT pathology is higher than previously reported.

  • What the papers say

    • Authors: Malviya A.
      First page: 194
      Abstract: The Journal of Hip Preservation Surgery (JHPS) is not the only place where work in the field of hip preservation may be published. Although our aim is to offer the best of the best, we continue to be fascinated by work that finds its way into journals other than our own. There is much to learn from it so JHPS has selected six recent and topical articles for those who seek a brief summary of what is taking place in our ever-fascinating world of hip preservation. What you see here are the mildly edited abstracts of the original articles, to give them what JHPS hopes is a more readable feel. If you are pushed for time, what follows should take you no more than 10 min to read. So here goes …

  • Open treatment of dysplasia—other than PAO: does it have to be a
           PAO?

    • Authors: Shibata KR; Matsuda S, Safran MR.
      First page: 131
      Abstract: Hip dysplasia is a developmental disorder that results in anatomic abnormalities in which the acetabular coverage is insufficient. In the absence of severe degenerative changes, younger active patients with these symptomatic structural abnormalities are increasingly managed with joint-preserving operations. Historically there have been numerous reconstructive pelvic osteotomies. In recent years, the Bernese periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) has become the preferred osteotomy by many surgeons. Even so, as our understanding of the hip advances and new diagnostic and treatment techniques are developed, we sought to put a focus on the long-term results of augmental osteotomies and pelvic osteotomies other than the PAO, to see if any of these surgeries still have a place in the current algorithm of treatment for the dysplastic hip. As the longevity of the treatment is the focal point for joint preservation surgeries for the dysplastic hip, these authors have searched databases for articles in the English literature that reported results of long-term follow-up with a minimum of 11-year survivorship after surgical treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip. Reconstruction osteotomies for the dysplastic hip are intended to restore normal hip anatomy and biomechanics, improve symptoms and prevent degenerative changes, in this manuscript each procedure is independently assessed on the ability to achieve these important characteristics.
