  1. VSS Visual Analog Scale; Primary: primary hip replacement; Response rates for primary hip replacement are based on n = 1877 surgical procedures; Response rates for revisions are based on n = 688 surgical procedures
  2. a Average response rates per measurement point. All patients had at least one measurement point at either pre-surgery or at one of the post-surgery follow-up measurements. The distribution of the number of 1, 2, and ≥3 measurement points was 30.5%, 27.4%, and 42.1% respectively
