Arthroscopy 2021 07;37(7):2137-2139

The optimal classification system in arthroscopic and related surgery research and clinical practice should be clinically relevant, descriptive, reproducible, simple, inexpensive, safe, and widely applicable. For the hip, classification systems that characterize intra-articular disorders like femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) syndrome, dysplasia, labral tears, and articular cartilage disease predominate the literature. Recently, awareness of peritrochanteric and other extra-articular disorders has increasingly led to greater recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of what has been historically known as "just bursitis".

Orthop Traumatol Surg Res 2020 Oct 31:102709. Epub 2020 Oct 31.

Orthopedic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Hôpital Sacré-Cœur de Montréal, 5400 boulevard Gouin O., H4J 1C5 Montréal, Québec, Canada.

Background: Greater trochanteric pain (GTP) after total hip replacement is a common cause of residual lateral hip pain, regardless of the approach used. The goal of our study was to evaluate GTP after a direct anterior approach (DAA) compared to a posterior approach (PA) as well as the clinical outcomes of both approaches and answer the following: 1) What is the incidence of trochanteric pain after primary THA with two different surgical approaches? 2) What is the functional outcome of patients with GTP? 3) What proportion of patients with GTP resort to peritrochanteric injections?

Hypothesis: Our hypothesis is that GTP is present with both approaches but satisfaction is lower with the PA.

Patients And Methods: A secondary analysis of a previously published clinical trial with 55 total hip arthroplasty patients randomized in one of two surgical approaches: 27 patients underwent the anterior modified Hueter approach, while the other group of 28 patients were operated using the posterior approach.
