ABSTRACT
This article comments on a clinical study according to which clinical evidence and consensus support the recommendation of 15 interventions in hip osteoarthritis. The gold standard for assessing management of osteoarthritis of the hip, a common, often disabling disease, is arguably the panel of multidisciplinary experts on whose deliberations this study. The study rightly stresses the great difficulty in devising ethically acceptable controlled trials that would formally establish the indications for total hip replacement. Open trials and patient preferences show that the current choice is between surgery and relatively ineffective palliation.
