Ultrasound-guided surgery for lateral snapping hip: a novel ultraminimally invasive surgical technique.

J Orthop Surg Res 2021 May 19;16(1):322. Epub 2021 May 19.

Avanfi Institute and Unit for Ultrasound-guided Surgery, Hospital Beata María Ana, Calle de Donoso Cortes 80, 28015, Madrid, Spain.

Background: Greater trochanteric pain syndrome encompasses a range of causes of lateral hip pain including greater trochanteric bursitis, tendinopathy and tears of the gluteus minimus and medius, and lateral snapping hip (LSH). Surgical options for LSH range from open surgery to endoscopic surgery, including a diamond-shaped cut or a simple transversal release to gluteus maximus tendon release. Resection of an area of proximal iliotibial band (ITB) and step-cut or z-plasty lengthening have not proven superior to transverse release of the ITB. Read More

Hip Abductor and Peritrochanteric Space Conditions.

Clin Sports Med 2021 Apr 5;40(2):311-322. Epub 2021 Feb 5.

USC Epstein Family for Sports Medicine at Keck Medicine of USC, 1520 San Pablo Street, #2000, Los Angeles, CA 90033, USA.

The hip trochanteric bursa, tendinous insertions of the gluteal muscles, and the origin vastus lateralis make up the main structures of the peritrochanteric space. Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) refers to pain generated by one or multiple disorders of the peritrochanteric space, such as trochanteric bursitis, gluteus medius and minimus tendinopathy or tear, and disorders of the proximal iliotibial band. Patients with GTPS might present with associated intra-articular hip pathology, which requires further investigation and appropriate management. Read More

Hip Gluteus Medius and Minimus Endoscopic Treatment Results in Patient Satisfaction.

Arthroscopy 2020 11;36(11):2775-2776

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome includes a spectrum of hip pathology, including trochanteric bursitis, gluteus medius or minimus tendinosis, partial abductor tear, full-thickness tear, and full-thickness tear plus retraction (with or without fatty atrophy). Physical diagnosis includes palpation for tenderness at the greater trochanter and evaluation for strength loss, including observation of gait. Women are significantly more likely to have a tear of the hip abductors than men. Read More

Dynamic ultrasound-guided trochanteric bursal injection.

Skeletal Radiol 2020 Jul 31;49(7):1155-1158. Epub 2020 Mar 31.

Department of Radiology, St Paul's Hospital, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 1M9, Canada.

Injection of steroid and anesthetic into the greater trochanteric bursa is commonly performed for trochanteric bursitis, gluteus medius/minimus tendinopathy, or as a part of a barbotage procedure for gluteus medius or minimus calcific tendonosis. Trochanteric bursal injection is widely performed both with and without image guidance, and is typically viewed as low-difficulty; however optimum needle tip position can be challenging. We discuss a simple dynamic technique to aid the practitioner in optimal needle placement. Read More

A double blind randomised control trial investigating the efficacy of platelet rich plasma versus placebo for the treatment of greater trochanteric pain syndrome (the HIPPO trial): a protocol for a randomised clinical trial.

Trials 2018 Sep 21;19(1):517. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, North Shields, UK.

Background: Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) is a painful condition characterised by pain around the greater trochanter usually affecting middle-aged women. The majority of patients will improve with conservative management such as physiotherapy and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); however, if this fails then more invasive treatments including corticosteroid injections and surgery may be required. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous blood product, which has a higher concentration of growth factors postulated to provide enhanced healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Read More
