The forgotten joint score-12 (FJS-12) may be an advantageous questionnaire in young patients with high hip function and a low level of pain. We investigated the reliability and the responsiveness of the FJS-12 in patients with femoroacetabular impingement undergoing hip arthroscopic treatment. Fifty patients were included in the reliability study and 34 patients were included in the responsiveness study. Test-retest reliability was assessed with intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), standard error of measurement (SEM) and minimal detectable change (MDC). Responsiveness was assessed from testing correlations between the FJS-12 and the Copenhagen Hip and Groin Outcome Score (HAGOS) of the change score, effect size (ES) and standardized response mean (SRM). Floor and ceiling effect were defined as present if the number of patients obtaining the maximum (100) and minimum score (0) exceeded 15%. The relative reliability was high (ICC = 0.9, 95% CI: 0.8-0.9) and the absolute reliability was low (SEM = 11, MDCindividual = 32, MDCgroup = 4.5). The responsiveness was high, and the change score was highly correlated with the subscale 'pain' from the HAGOS and moderately correlated with the subscale 'ADL'. Furthermore, the FJS-12 exceeded or equalled the HAGOS subscales in ES and SRM. Below 15% of the patients scored the maximum or minimum score. The FJS-12 has high reliability, high responsiveness to change and shows no floor or ceiling effect.
