|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Hip Osteoarthritis||Procedure: Hip arthroplasty|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||102 participants|
|Official Title:||Obesity's Impact on the Clinical Efficacy and Quality of Life 1 Year After Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty|
|Study Start Date :||November 2011|
|Primary Completion Date :||May 2013|
|Study Completion Date :||May 2013|
Procedure: Hip arthroplasty
The purpose of hip arthroplasties is to reduce pain and increase mobility.
- SF-36 [ Time Frame: Measured 1 week before surgery and 12 months postoperatively ]A patient reported outcome (PRO). The questionnaire is a tool for measuring health status. The form is used to measure the patient's view of his own health by scoring standardized responses to standardized questions. The schedule consists of 36 questions representing eight health concepts.
- HOOS [ Time Frame: Measured 1 week before surgery and 12 months postoperatively ]Hip - specific patient-reported outcome that measures the patient's own assessment of hip problems and related problems. The schedule consists of 42 questions representing 5 strands.
- Body composition [ Time Frame: Measured 1 week before surgery and 12 months postoperatively ]Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) can measure total body bone mineral density and obtain accurate measurements of body tissue composition (muscle mass and fat mass). By measuring the body's muscle mass, fat mass and bone mineral density, one can estimate total body fat percentage.
- Bone mineral density (BMD). [ Time Frame: Measured 1 week before surgery and 12 months postoperatively ]Measured by DXA scan.
