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. A group of international experts was convened to participate in a one-day consensus meeting. At the one-day consensus meeting, panel members developed statements in response to key questions: 1) What is fai syndrome? 2) How to diagnose ISP syndrome? 3) What is the appropriate treatment for ISP syndrome?, 4) What is the prognosis of fai syndrome, 4) How should someone with an asymptomatic hip be treated with a cam or claw morphology? 5) What outcome measures should be taken to assess the treatment of ISP syndrome? 6) What are the future researches? The 2016 Warwick Agreement on ISP Syndrome is an international multidisciplinary agreement on diagnosis, treatment principles and key terminology for ISP syndrome. To support patients, physicians and funders, we have convened a consensus meeting. Our goal was to reach an international multidisciplinary agreement on the diagnosis and management of ISP syndrome. Contributors DRG, JO, KB, HR and EJD came up with the idea to carry out this study and identified potential panel members. DRG, EJD, KB and JO designed the study. The AEJ gathered and distributed the bibliography, coordinated the development of themes and chaired the consensus meeting. All authors contributed to the evolution of the content of the declaration of agreement by participating in the meeting or subsequent discussions and voting in favour of its approval. DRG and EJD wrote the first draft of the document; All the authors helped edit the manuscript and approved the final version.
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.
