Prevalence of Contralateral Hip Abductor Tears and Factors Associated With Symptomatic Progression.

Am J Sports Med 2022 05;50(6):1603-1608

Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas, Prisma Health-Upstate, Greenville, South Carolina, USA.

Background: Patients with gluteus medius tendinopathy present with laterally based hip pain that can be diagnosed under the greater trochanteric pain syndrome diagnosis. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can assist in diagnosing pathology of the symptomatic hip, and when a pelvic MRI that includes both hips, the clinician may identify asymptomatic tears in the nonsurgical hip. In patients who undergo unilateral gluteus medius repairs, little is known about the prevalence or subsequent onset of clinical symptoms in the nonsurgical hip. Read More

Classification Based Treatment of Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) with Integration of the Movement System.

Int J Sports Phys Ther 2022 1;17(3):508-518. Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Department of Physical Therapy, Duquesne University.

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) refers to pain in the lateral hip and thigh and can encompass multiple diagnoses including external snapping hip (coxa saltans), also known as proximal iliotibial band syndrome, trochanteric bursitis, and gluteus medius (GMed) or gluteus minimus (GMin) tendinopathy or tearing. GTPS presents clinicians with a similar diagnostic challenge as non-specific low back pain with special tests being unable to identify the specific pathoanatomical structure involved and do little to guide the clinician in prescription of treatment interventions. Like the low back, the development of GTPS has been linked to faulty mechanics during functional activities, mainly the loss of pelvic control in the frontal place secondary to hip abductor weakness or pain with hip abductor activation.

A Case of Iliopsoas Bursitis With Compressive Femoral Nerve Palsy Treated With Iliopsoas Tendon Release.

Arthroplast Today 2022 Apr 18;14:148-153. Epub 2022 Mar 18.

Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT, USA.

Iliopsoas bursitis is a well-established cause of groin pain after total hip arthroplasty (THA), and it can become dramatically more complex when associated with neurovascular compression. Iliopsoas bursitis may be caused by a variety of pathologies in the setting of a THA but most frequently due to a prominent acetabular component or implant wear. Here we report a rare case of a female patient presenting with iliopsoas tendonitis, an accompanying femoral nerve palsy, and debilitating pain beginning 12 years after a previously successful primary THA without apparent implant wear.
