The effect of postoperative femoral offset on outcomes after hip arthroplasty: A systematic review
The purpose of this systematic review was to analyze the effect of decreased, restored, or increased femoral offset on patient reported outcomes (PROs) following hip arthroplasty. Databases were searched according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses guidelines. With regard to Harris Hip Score, two studies reported superior outcomes for the increased femoral offset group, one study reported superior outcomes for a restored offset group, and the final study reported favorable outcomes for the decreased offset group. Patients with restored offset following arthroplasty may demonstrate superior PROs.
