Table 3 Postoperative joint perception of the patients who underwent hip arthroplasty according to the distribution of their postoperative total WOMAC scores (n = 265)

From: Identification of patients with suboptimal results after hip arthroplasty: development of a preliminary prediction algorithm

Joint perception
