Low prevalence of trochanteric bursitis in patients with refractory lateral hip pain.

Dan Med J 2022 Jun 15;69(7). Epub 2022 Jun 15.

H-HiP, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Horsens Regional Hospital.

Introduction: Bursitis at the greater trochanter has historically been identified as a major pain generator in patients with lateral hip pain (LHP). We believe that hip abductor tendon pathology (HATP) plays an important and overlooked role in LHP. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the presence of isolated trochanteric bursitis on MRI in patients with refractory LHP. Read More

Motor control exercises versus general exercises for greater trochanteric pain syndrome: A protocol of a randomized controlled trial.

PLoS One 2022 24;17(6):e0269230. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Department of Physical Education, Institute of Biosciences, São Paulo State University (UNESP), Rio Claro, São Paulo, Brazil.

Introduction: Greater trochanteric pain syndrome is an overarching term used to define pain and tenderness in the greater trochanteric region of the femur, which is more common in women. Abnormal control of lower limb movements and deficient neuromuscular parameters may lead to greater trochanteric pain syndrome; however, no studies have used neuromuscular training as a treatment strategy. Thus, this study aims to compare the effect of a protocol of general exercises versus a program of motor control training on pain at baseline and after treatment in women with greater trochanteric pain syndrome.

Editorial Commentary: The Indication and Technique of Iliotibial Band Release for External Snapping Hip During Hip Arthroscopy in Patients With Femoroacetabular Impingement Syndrome.

Arthroscopy 2022 06;38(6):1900-1903

The Fourth Medical Center, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Patients with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome (FAIS) often have extra-articular disorders, such as external snapping hip (ESH). We recommend that obvious ESH be addressed by endoscopic transversal iliotibial band (ITB) release during hip arthroscopy for FAIS because the residual serious snapping caused by ESH negatively affects the outcome of hip arthroscopy. However, for mild ESH without indications for severe trochanteric bursitis on magnetic resonance imaging, we still propose that physical therapy, extracorporeal shock wave therapy, or local injection be performed for pain relief.

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

Editorial Commentary: It Is Imperative to Fix Symptomatic Hip Gluteus Medius Tears at Time of Femoroacetabular Impingement: Why Ignore This Pain in the Butt?

Arthroscopy 2022 05;38(5):1506-1508

Akron, Ohio.

The hip can have a multitude of different pathologies leading to different symptoms. Greater trochanteric pain syndrome, historically attributed to bursitis, has been largely found to be associated with lesions of the gluteus medius and minimus tendons, and the prevalence of gluteus medius pathology in patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is as high as one-third of the FAI population. If a patient is found to have significant clinical symptoms of both FAI and a gluteus medius tear, it is imperative to fix both pathologies. 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.
