Background: Health state utility values (HSUVs) are a key input in health economic modelling but HSUVs of people with osteoarthritis (OA)-related conditions have not been systematically reviewed and meta-analysed.Objective: To systematically review and meta-analyse the HSUVs for people with OA.Methods: Searches within health economic/biomedical databases were performed to identify eligible studies reporting OA-related HSUVs. Data on study design, participant characteristics, affected OA joint sites, treatment type, HSUV elicitation method, considered health states, and the reported HSUVs were extracted. HSUVs for people with knee, hip and mixed OA in pre- and post-treatment populations were meta-analysed using random effects models. Results: One-hundred and fifty-one studies were included in the systematic review, and 88 in meta-analyses. Of 151 studies, 56% were conducted in Europe, 75% were in people with knee and/or hip OA and 79% were based on the EQ-5D. The pooled mean (95% confidence interval [CI]) baseline HSUVs for knee OA core interventions, medication, injection and primary surgery treatments were 0.64 (0.61–0.66), 0.56 (0.45−0.68), 0.58 (0.50–0.66) and 0.52 (0.49–0.55), respectively. These were 0.71 (0.59–0.84) for hip OA core interventions and 0.52 (0.49–0.56) for hip OA primary surgery. For all knee OA treatments and hip OA primary surgery, pooled HSUVs were significantly higher in the post- than the pre- treatment populations. Conclusion: This study provides a comprehensive summary of OA-related HSUVs and generates a HSUVs database for people with different affected OA joint sites undergoing different treatments to guide HSUV choices in future health economic modelling of OA interventions.
