Introduction: Outcomes for patients treated with PAO and subsequent total hip arthroplasty (THA) remain unclear. We evaluated patient-reported outcomes among patients treated with PAO and subsequent THA and investigated differences in the number of additional surgical procedures after PAO among patients treated with PAO and subsequent THA and patients treated with PAO only. Materials and methods: 1378 hips underwent PAO and subsequently 66 hips were treated with THA. We evaluated the Hip disability and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (HOOS) and physical activity questions for the 66 hips. Additional surgery after PAO was identified through inquiry to the Danish National Patient Registry. Results: 13% undergoing PAO and subsequent THA reported a HOOS pain score ≤ 50 indicating a clinical failure. The risk difference for hip arthroscopy after PAO within 2 and 4 years was 14% (CI 5–23%) and 26% (CI 15–38%) in favor of hips treated with PAO only. Similarly, the risk difference for screw removal within 2 and 4 years was 19% (CI 8–29%) and 23% (CI 12–34%). Conclusion: 87% of patients undergoing PAO and subsequent THA had little or no hip pain. However, these patients received a high number of additional surgeries after PAO. Surgeons and patients may consider if additional surgery after PAO may be the first choice in a series of actions leading to conversion to THA.
