This article presents information on a clinical study according to which clinical evidence and consensus support the recommendation of 15 interventions in hip osteoarthritis. The study explored the effective and cost-effective therapies for hip osteoarthritis (OA). A multidisciplinary panel of experts generated 10 propositions regarding OA treatment using a Delphi technique. The evidence from the 1 RCT of intraarticular steroid injection was insufficient to assess the efficacy of this treatment. In patients with hip osteoarthritis, 5 interventions are supported by controlled-trial evidence for relieving pain and improving function.
