Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

During the past decades, several rating scales have been developed to assess the functional status of patients with hip pain.

SOURCE OF DATA:

A search in Medline, PubMed, Cochrane and CINAHL was performedusing combinations of the following'hip', 'scoring system', 'scale', 'scores', 'outcome assessment', 'arthroplasty', 'arthroscopy' and 'clinical evaluation'.

AREAS OF AGREEMENT:

A total 16 scoring systems are currently available for the evaluation of the hip.

AREAS OF CONTROVERSY:

Two types of questionnaires are available: physician-rated and patient-rated questionnaires.

GROWING POINTS:

Each hip score consists of different domains. Interpreting these domains becomes sometimes difficult, because, even though they can be common to more than one scoring system, each stresses them in a different way.

AREAS TIMELY FOR DEVELOPING RESEARCH:

Although many scoring systems have been used to evaluate hip function, we are still far from a single outcome evaluation system which is reliable, valid and sensitive.
