Machine-Learning Tool Identified Predictive Factors Associated with Worse Patient Outcomes After Arthroscopic Hip Surgery for Femoroacetabular Impingement

A machine-learning algorithm developed by an orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) and his colleagues identified predictive factors associated with worse outcomes for patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) of the hip who had arthroscopic surgery to treat it. FAI is a condition in which the ball and socket of the hip joint do not fit together properly and can ultimately cause pain and the need for a surgical repair.

According to a paper published on January 31 in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, the factors that significantly predicted worse patient outcomes were anxiety and depression, duration of symptoms for more than two years before surgery, a high preoperative score on patient-reported outcome surveys and, surprisingly, receiving preoperative steroid injections.

Patient Power®, which delivers patient-powered journalism, information and opportunities to engage with and connect to the cancer community, reports that results from the first Patient Power Cancer Clinical Trials Survey show that the majority of patients surveyed were interested in taking part in clinical trials, which is good news for drug developers and government looking to complete trial enrollment. The survey also found that patients who participated in clinical studies—some of them in more than one—found them to be of clinical benefit and well worth the effort. However, a little under half of the patients stated that their medical care team had not discussed clinical trials with them, and when patients brought the subject up, often participation was discouraged.

The study results were reported in a keynote speech by Patient Power Co-Founder and President, Andrew Schorr, at the Gl
