Arthroscopic Treatment of Labral Tears in Patients Aged 60 Years or Older.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to (1) evaluate the clinical outcomes of a series of patients aged 60 years or older who underwent hip arthroscopy for labral tears with minimum 2-year follow-up and (2) identify risk factors for conversion to total hip arthroplasty (THA).

METHODS: Outcome data were prospectively collected and retrospectively reviewed in patients aged 60 years or older who underwent hip arthroscopy between April 2008 and May 2012. Four patient-reported outcome (PRO) scores, pain scores, and satisfaction ratings were collected. Conversion to THA and revision surgery rates were recorded. A subgroup analysis compared survivors with patients requiring THA.
