Background and purpose - Patient-acceptable symptom states (PASS) represent the level on a patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) at which patients are satisfied with postoperative outcomes. We defined the PASS for the Oxford Hip Score (OHS) and Forgotten Joint Score (FJS-12) at 3-month, 1-year, and 2-year intervals after primary total hip arthroplasty (THA).Patients and methods - Between July 2018 and April 2019, primary THA patients in an academic medical center's registry completed the OHS, FJS-12, and a satisfaction anchor question at 3-month (n = 230), 1-year (n = 180), or 2-year (n = 187) postoperative intervals. PASS thresholds were derived with receiver operating characteristic analysis using the 80% specificity method. 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated using 1,000 non-parametric bootstrap replications.Results - 74%, 85%, and 86% of patients reported having a satisfactory symptom state at 3 months, 1, and 2 years after surgery, respectively. At 3-month, 1-year, and 2-year intervals, PASS thresholds were 34 (CI 31-36), 40 (CI 36-44), and 39 (CI 35-42) points for the OHS and 59 (CI 54-64), 68 (CI 61-75), and 69 (CI 62-75) points for the FJS-12.Interpretation - PASS thresholds varied with time for both the OHS and the FJS-12, with lower 3-month compared with 1-year and 2-year thresholds. These PASS thresholds represent OHS and FJS-12 levels at which the average patient is satisfied with THA outcomes, helping to interpret PROMs and serving as clinically significant benchmarks and patient-centered outcomes for research.
