Psychological Distress and Outcomes in Hip Preservation Patients
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||University of Utah|
|Start date||January 2012|
|End date||January 2018|
|Trial size||200 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01550263, 48948|
This is an investigatory study to determine whether high levels of pre-operative psychological distress predict worse outcomes after hip preservation. This is a low risk study and does not alter the treatment or course of care for patients undergoing this procedure
Distress and Risk Assessment Method (DRAM) questionaire
time frame: 1 year
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: 1. Primary presenting complaint of hip pain 2. Hip arthroscopy, surgical dislocation and debridement, and/or periacetabular osteotomy performed by Dr. Aoki or Dr. Peters for hip pathology diagnosed by history, clinical examination and/or imaging Exclusion Criteria: 1. Unable to complete the DRAM questionnaire 2. Patients who do not undergo surgery
|Official title||Pre-Operative Psychological Distress and Post-Operative Outcomes in Hip Preservation Patients|
|Principal investigator||Stephen K Aoki, MD|
|Description||The correlation between increasing psychological distress and worsening surgical outcomes has been extensively documented in patients undergoing spine surgery. However, we have no reason to believe that patients with hip pathology are uniquely exempt from the influence of psychosocial factors. To our knowledge, no study has been done to evaluate the effect of pre-operative psychological distress on outcomes after hip preservation surgery. We therefore propose to use the DRAM to measure pre-operative distress in patients undergoing open or arthroscopic hip preservation surgery and to compare these pre-operative distress scores with post-operative outcomes. We hope the information we gain will allow clinicians to comprehensively evaluate the patient with hip pain and to make more informed choices about operative treatment.|
