After failed primary hip preservation surgery, revision with hip arthroscopy achieved moderately successful outcomes on the basis of multiple patient-reported outcome scores, according to study results.

All patients who underwent revision hip preservation with arthroscopy from April 2008 to December 2010, including patients who had previous open surgery and underwent revision with arthroscopy, were included. The researchers obtained patient-reported outcome (PRO) scores preoperatively and at 3-month, 1-year, 2-year and 3-year follow-up time points. Using a multiple regression analysis, the researchers looked for positive and negative predictive factors for improvement in PROs after revision hip arthroscopy.
