The prevalence of LAS in this study was estimated at 3%. We used the phED definition in the Warwick Agreement as a triad of symptoms, physical signs and imaging. Current challenges in applying this definition include the lack of agreement on the best method of measuring each element of this triad and an incomplete understanding of the relationships between them. A different approach was taken when discussing the need for research in the future. Hip 2016 delegates, including panel members, were invited to give their views on key research questions that need to be answered to improve the management of fai syndrome. Responses from the EJD and the KB were collected. We used a web priority program (www.1000minds.com) to organize these research questions. This software presented panel members with pairs of research questions and asked them to choose the larger of the two. Repeated pair comparisons between all panel members resulted in an orderly list of search questions. During the meeting of the agreement, the group used this orderly list of research questions as the basis for open debate and the development of research topics. Average approval rate: 9.8 (95% CI 9.6 to 10). The 2016 Warwick Agreement on Femoroacet Impinging Syndrome (ISP) was convened to create an international, multidisciplinary consensus on the diagnosis and management of patients with ISP syndrome.
On June 29, 2016, 22 panel members and 1 patient from 9 countries and 5 different disciplines participated in a one-day consensus meeting. Prior to the meeting, 6 questions were agreed and systematic reviews and pioneering literature were distributed. Panel members made presentations on the themes of the issues agreed upon at Sports Hip 2016, an open meeting held June 27-29 in the United Kingdom. The presentations were the subject of an open discussion. At the one-day consensus meeting, panel members elaborated explanations on each issue during an open discussion; Members then agreed to each response on a scale of 0 to 10. For each of the six consensual issues, a key agreement (domain 9.5-10) was reached and the corresponding terminology was agreed. The term “femoroacetabular impingement syndrome” was introduced to reflect the central role of patients` symptoms in the disease. To get a diagnosis, patients must have appropriate symptoms, positive clinical signs and imaging results.
Appropriate treatments include conservative care, rehabilitation and arthroscopic or open surgery. Current understanding of forecasts and themes for future research was discussed. The 2016 Warwick Agreement on ISP Syndrome is an international multidisciplinary agreement on diagnosis, treatment principles and key terminology for ISP syndrome. The author of the femoroacet impingement syndrome war convention has been approved by the following 25 clinical societies: American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM), Association of Physiotherapist Chartereds in Sports and Exercise Medicine (ACPSEM), Australasian College of Sports and Exercise Physicians (ACSEP), Physiotherapists of Austian Sports, British Association of Sports and Exercise Medicine (BASEM), British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRAT), Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise Medicine (CASEM), Danish Society of Sports Physical Therapy (DSSF), European College of Sports and Exercise Physicians (ECOSEP), European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA), Finnish Association of Physiotherapists (SUFT), German-Austrian Association of Trauma Orthopaedic Sports Medicine (GOTS), International Federation of Physical Physical Sports (IFSPT), International Society for Hip Arthroscopy (ISHA) Groupo di Interesse Specialistico dell`A.
