A 70-year-old female patient is being assessed in the outpatient clinic due to a 3-year duration left hip pain that has been worsening despite optimized medical treatment in previous consultations. This is having a severe impact in her quality of live.
On physical exam, left hip active and passive mobilization is severely limited due to stiffness and pain. X-ray shows joint space narrowing, subchondral sclerosis, and osteophytes.
Coxarthrosis progression assessment
Treatment according to clinical and radiological assessment
Surgical treatment referral
Symptomatic slow-acting drugs for OA (SYSADOAs)
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
