Study shows substantial benefits in obese patients after hip arthroscopy
Although obese patients undergoing hip arthroscopy started with lower absolute scores preoperatively and ended with lower overall absolute postoperative scores, they showed substantial benefit from surgery, demonstrating a degree of improvement similar to non-obese patients, according to study results. Researchers assessed 680 patients undergoing primary hip arthroscopy preoperatively and postoperatively with four patient-reported outcome measures. […]

Although obese patients undergoing hip arthroscopy started with lower absolute scores preoperatively and ended with lower overall absolute postoperative scores, they showed substantial benefit from surgery, demonstrating a degree of improvement similar to non-obese patients, according to study results.

Researchers assessed 680 patients undergoing primary hip arthroscopy preoperatively and postoperatively with four patient-reported outcome measures. The researchers estimated pain on the VAS and measured patient satisfaction scores. Five hundred sixty-two patients with a BMI of less than 30 kg/m2 were included in the non-obese group; 94 patients with a BMI of 30 kg/m2 to 34.9 kg/m2 were included in the class-I obese group; and 24 patients with a BMI of 35 kg/m2 to 39.9 kg/m2 were included in the class-II obese group.
