ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to evaluate clinical outcomes after treatment for femoroacetabular impingement in the pediatric and adolescent population with a minimum of 2 years' follow-up.
Prospectively collected data on 60 consecutive pediatric and adolescent patients (65 hips), aged 16 years or younger, who underwent hip arthroscopy were retrospectively analyzed. Patients were excluded if they had previous surgery on the hip and if they presented a center-edge angle below 25°.
The mean age at the time of surgery was 15 years (range, 11 to 16 years), and 31% of patients were boys and 69% were girls. The femoral physis was open in 10% of patients, partially closed in 19%, and closed in 71%. Cam impingement was found in 10% of cases, pincer impingement in 15%, and mixed type in 75%. The mean center-edge angle was 36° (95% confidence interval [CI], 34° to 38°), and the mean alpha angle was 64° (95% CI, 60° to 69°). There was a significant association between age and alpha angle (r = 0.324, P = .02). After the index procedure, 8 patients (all girls) needed second-look diagnostic arthroscopies because of intra-articular adhesions. At a mean follow-up of 3 years (range, 2 to 5 years) with 91% follow-up, the modified Harris Hip Score increased from a mean of 57 (95% CI, 51 to 62) to a mean of 91 (95% CI, 88 to 94) (P < .001). The median rating for patient satisfaction with outcome was 10 (range, 5 to 10).
Hip arthroscopy in the pediatric and adolescent population is a safe procedure, with excellent clinical outcomes at 2 to 5 years. In this study there was an association between alpha angle and age. Clinical scores showed a significant improvement after surgery; however, 13% of patients did require a second procedure for capsulolabral adhesions.
Level IV, therapeutic case series.

    ABSTRACT: Background Les résultats du traitement arthroscopique du conflit fémoro-acétabulaire sont encourageants à court terme mais rarement évalués au recul de 5 ans. Les objectifs de cette étude étaient d’évaluer à ce recul : 1) les résultats fonctionnels et radiographiques et les facteurs pronostiques ? 2) le taux de survie (reprise par arthroplastie) et les facteurs l’influençant. Hypothèse Notre hypothèse était que les résultats traitement arthroscopique du conflit fémoro-acétabulaire se maintiennent dans le temps. Matériel et méthode Nous avons mené une étude prospective, multi-opérateur, sur 53 hanches classées Tonnis 0 ou 1, opérées par arthroscopie d’un conflit fémoro-acétabulaire symptomatique (23 cames, 10 pinces et 20 mixtes). L’évaluation à court (10 mois) et moyen (4,6 ans) termes portait sur : le résultat fonctionnel (score WOMAC et score de satisfaction), le taux de survie (critère de censure : reprise par arthroplastie) et le taux de dégradation arthrosique (stade Tonnis). Résultats Le score WOMAC chez les patients non réopérés était significativement (p < 0,01) amélioré entre le préopératoire (61,4 ± 15,6) et les évaluations à court terme (84,2 ± 15,6) et au recul (85,2 ± 15,5) (NS entre court et moyen terme confirmant la stabilité des résultats). Au recul, 68 % (36 sur 53) des patients étaient satisfaits (79 % à court terme [NS]). La dégradation arthrosique concernait 13 hanches sur les 35 (37 %) qui ont eu des radiographies au recul. Le taux de survie à 55 mois était de 87 % (IC95 % [78–96]) (7 hanches reprises par prothèse). Le principal facteur pronostic était le stade Tonnis préopératoire : les hanches classées Tonnis 1 présentaient au recul un score WOMAC plus faible (77 versus 88), un taux de satisfaction plus faible (50 % versus 77 %), un taux de dégradation arthrosique (57 % versus 24 %) et d’arthroplastie (33,3 % versus 2,9 %) plus élevés que les hanches Tonnis 0. Discussion Nos résultats sont concordant avec les données de la littérature, ils sont stables dans le temps et confirment que le statut arthrosique préopératoire est le principal facteur prédictif de l’évolution à moyen terme. Niveau de preuve IV (étude prospective de cohorte).

    ABSTRACT: Cam-type femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is generally described as being more common in males, with pincer-type FAI being more common in females. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of sex on FAI subtype, clinical presentation, radiographic findings, and intraoperative findings in patients with symptomatic FAI.

    ABSTRACT: Recently, arthroscopic-based treatment for hip-related pain with radiological findings of femoroacetabular impingement and labral lesions has been developed.We aim to present clinical outcome in a single centre patient cohort of patients treated arthroscopically for hip-related pain due to femoroacetabular impingement. A total of 117 consecutive patients operated in 2009-2011 were included in this prospective case series (41% male; mean age 37 years; (range 15-70). The indication for arthroscopic treatment of hip-related pain was mechanical hip symptoms and radiological findings of femoroacetabular impingement.To evaluate hip function and pain level at 1-year and 2-5 years follow up (FU) mHHS (Modified Harris Hip Score), HOS (Hip Outcome Score) and a Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) pain score were used. Labral tears were seen in 91% of the hip arthroscopies. Cartilage lesions (ICRS grade 2 and above) were seen at the acetabular and femoral articular surfaces in 79% and 15% of cases, respectively. The therapeutic procedures were in 99% of the arthroscopies osteochondroplasty and/or acetabular rim-trimming. In 77% of procedures labral reattachment was performed. The patient evaluated outcome demonstrated significant increases in mHHS and HOS at 1-year follow up and at final FU compared to preoperatively (1 yr: mHHS: 72.1 to 85.3, HOS: 71.4 to 85.1; final FU: mHHS: 72.1 to 83.8, HOS: 71.4 to 83.7). Pain levels decreased significantly from preoperatively to follow ups. Five patients underwent total hip replacement within the follow up period after hip arthroscopy. Arthroscopic treatment of femoroacetabular impingement improves patient evaluated outcomes. Further studies are needed to determine failure rates and risk factors.
