Younger patients with hip joint pain
Ugeskr Læger 2020;182:V06180432
This review summarises the present knowledge of diagnosing and treating hip joint pain. The results of joint preserving surgery are good in symptomatic patients with hip dysplasia, acetabular retroversion or impingement (cam or pincer) without signs of osteoarthritis. Confirmation of intraarticular pathology as the cause of symptoms is established clinically, and the pathology can in many cases be visualised by a standing, standardised radiograph of the pelvis, which is the basis for admission to the relevant orthopaedic department. We present an algorithm for this. Dysplasia and retroversion can be treated by periacetabular osteotomy and impingement by arthroscopic procedures.
