BACKGROUND: Femoroplasty performed for the treatment of cam-type femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) has become a common procedure. Underresection may result in residual FAI. Conversely, overresection may disrupt the labral seal, which is responsible for chondroprotective fluid dynamics of the hip. Hypothesis/Purpose: It was hypothesized that cam overresection negatively affects hip function. The purpose was to examine the effect of the accuracy of previous femoroplasty on hips presenting for revision hip arthroscopic surgery...

During arthroscopic Bankart-repair the lasso-loop-stitch can be used. The clinical outcome of this technical modification to a broadly used procedure is not known. We followed-up 24 patients treated with this technique over 30 months. We found an excellent clinical outcome in 96% of all cases. The average Rowe-score was 96.3 points. The mean QuickDash was 2.8 points. Using the lasso-loop-stitch in arthroscopic Bankart-repair is safe and results in very good clinical outcomes. It might lead to an accentuated labral bump and enables secure knot-tying with knot-positioning away from the articular cartilage while avoiding the suture cutting through the tissue...

Case: A 28-year-old with borderline left hip dysplasia who underwent arthroscopic acetabuloplasty, femoral osteochondroplasty, and labral repair for femoroacetabular impingement. She did well for 8 years, though required arthroscopic capsulolabral adhesion release 2 years after the initial procedure. After this period of stability, she developed left hip pain during pregnancy. Radiographs demonstrated progressive osteoarthritis that lead to total hip arthroplasty at age 37. Conclusion: The physiologic and hormonal changes during pregnancy leading to increased ligamentous laxity may put vulnerable patients with hip dysplasia and iatrogenic instability at increased risk for progression of osteoarthritis...

BACKGROUND: Surgical treatment for shoulder instability generally involves labral repair with a capsular plication or imbrication. Good results are reported in both open and arthroscopic procedures, but there is no consensus on the amount or location of capsular plication that is needed to achieve stability and anatomic anterior, posterior, and inferior translation of the joint. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What are the separate and combined effects of increasing plication magnitude and sequential additive plications in the anterior, posterior, and inferior locations of the joint capsule on glenohumeral joint translation in the anterior, posterior, and inferior directions? (2) What plication location and magnitude restores anterior, posterior, and inferior translation to a baseline level? METHODS: Fourteen cadaveric shoulders were dissected down to the glenohumeral capsule and underwent instrumented biomechanical testing...

BACKGROUND: Meniscal calcification is considered to play a relevant role in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis of the knee. Little is known about the biology of acetabular labral disease and its importance in hip pathology. Here, we analyze for the first time the calcification of the acetabular labrum of the hip (ALH) and its relation to hip cartilage degeneration. METHODS: In this cross-sectional post-mortem study of an unselected sample of the general population, 170 ALH specimens and 170 femoral heads from 85 donors (38 female, 47 male; mean age 62...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of acetabular labral tears with moderate or severe intrasubstance damage or segmental defects remains a substantial challenge. Circumferential labral reconstruction with iliotibial band allograft is a relatively new technique that has been proposed to restore stability and eliminate high-stress junction points. PURPOSE: To compare outcomes between hips treated with primary allograft circumferential labral reconstruction and primary labral repair...

BACKGROUND: Hip arthroscopy has led to a greater understanding of intra-articular hip pathology. Non-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is currently the gold standard in non-invasive imaging diagnosis, with high sensitivity in identifying labral pathology but equivocal results for ligamentum teres damage and chondral defects. The aim of this study is to determine the accuracy of non-contrast MRI for diagnosis of intra-articular hip derangements and identify radiological features that could increase the accuracy of the diagnosis...

In nonarthritic patients with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome, borderline dysplasia, and symptomatic iliopsoas snapping, arthroscopic iliopsoas fractional lengthening carries a significant risk of postarthroscopic instability. The iliopsoas is a dynamic stabilizer of the anterior hip. Thus, although statistically significant and clinically important improvements in hip function have the potential to be achieved with iliopsoas fractional lengthening, surgeons must be supremely confident in their ability to perform a secure capsular plication, labral preservation (not debridement), comprehensive cam correction, avoidance of intra-abdominal fluid extravasation, release of all iliopsoas tendon bands (if bifid or trifid), and ensure that femoral version is normal or low, neck-shaft angle is not excessively valgus, the dysplasia magnitude is no more than mild, and that there is no excessive soft tissue hypermobility...

Hip arthroscopy has demonstrated a drastic rise in utilization in the past decade for the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement, labral tears, and early arthritic changes. During that time, there has also been a rise in the use of administrative claims databases that have allowed for the analysis of trends in surgical procedures. Multiple large administrative database analyses have been used to characterize the changing trends in hip arthroscopy, and the demand for these procedures has grown significantly at our own institution as well as nationally...

Hip arthroscopy is an evolving procedure and its indications have expanded. The number of patients undergoing this procedure has increased significantly as well as the number of surgeons being trained. This has resulted in a notable increase in post-operative complication rates creating the need to develop advanced hip arthroscopic techniques. Revision hip arthroscopy is often complex and many factors should be considered to achieve a satisfactory clinical outcome. Careful pre-operative planning and agreement of expectations between the physician and patient regarding the procedure are important...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic hip dislocation in children and adolescents is a rare entity that typically results from high-energy trauma. After closed joint reduction, further treatment depends on the specific pattern of the lesion as identified using cross sectional imaging. The aim of this retrospective analysis was to evaluate relevant side effects after traumatic hip dislocation in children and adolescents in order to examine the need for focused diagnostics. PATIENTS/MATERIAL AND METHODS: This retrospective analysis covered 8 adolescents under 18 years suffering isolated traumatic hip joint dislocation between 2001 and 2017...

Traumatic and overuse hip injuries occur frequently in amateur and professional athletes. After clinical assessment, imaging plays an important role in diagnosis and in defining care management of these injuries. Ultrasonography (US) is being increasingly used in assessment of hip injuries because of the wide availability of US machines, the lower cost, and the unique real-time imaging capability, which allows both static and dynamic evaluation as well as guidance of point-of-care interventions such as fluid aspiration and steroid injection...
