Abstract To further develop the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC LK 3.0) for people with hip disability with or without hip osteoarthritis (OA), 52 subjects (median age 64 yrs, 35 women) answered a version of the Index with additional dimensions, twice, with a one-week interval. Reproducibility, percentage of zero scores (best possible scores), mean score of symptoms, and importance, were analyzed. This resulted in the Hip disability and osteoarthritis outcome score (HOOS LK 1.1), a 39-item questionnaire with five separate sub-scales. There were higher median scores (more symptoms) for three of HOOS sub-scales Pain, Activity limitations--sport and recreation, and Hip-related Quality of life compared to those in the WOMAC, improving the ability to assess change in patients over time. The HOOS appears to be an evaluative instrument for assessing important self-rated hip problems for people with hip disability with/without hip OA, but additional studies are needed.
