Labral reconstruction

Brian J White, Julie Patterson, Mackenzie M Herzog
PURPOSE: To compare the outcome of labral repair versus labral reconstruction in patients presenting to a single surgeon for revision hip arthroscopy following previous labral treatment. METHODS: Patients who underwent revision labral repair or labral reconstruction using iliotibial band allograft, after previous labral debridement or repair, between 2009 and 2013 were identified. Hips that underwent revision labral reconstruction were further stratified into 2 graft groups (freeze-dried v frozen allograft)...

Inferior labrum anterior to posterior lesions as an isolated injury or as part of an extensive traumatic labral tear are uncommon and may present as multidirectional instability of the shoulder. These lesions are hard to visualize radiographically and many times are diagnosed only during surgery. Arthroscopic repair of these lesions requires advanced arthroscopic skills and is required for restoration of glenohumeral stability. We report a combined double-pulley simple knot technique that anatomically reconstructs the inferior labrum while overcoming the typical technical challenges, providing a large footprint for healing along the inferior glenoid rim and minimizing the amount of suture material in direct contact with the articular cartilage and the risk of knot migration...

Facial approximation techniques used in forensic anthropology are based on soft-tissue thickness databases. However most of articles deal with adult populations, and very few studies were conducted on minors. This study aims at providing data concerning facial thickness for George reconstruction, preliminary to the 3D facial approximation. Diagnostic cephalometric X-ray films were obtained from 222 healthy Caucasoid children (91 boys and 131 girls), aged between 6 and 18years, treated in a Department of Orthodontics of Northern Italy...

The importance of the acetabular labrum has been increasingly recognized, playing a critical role in both normal anatomy and abnormal pathology of the hip joint. The labrum increases acetabular surface area and volume, providing a stable and durable articulation. The fibrocartilaginous composition affords a tissue capable of a lifetime of normal function in the absence of significant osseous pathology. In the setting of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) or dysplasia, bony biomechanics may cause labral injury, which may translate to patient symptoms...

Because hip arthroscopic procedures are increasing in number, complications related to the operation itself are starting to emerge. Whereas the capsule has been recognized as an important static stabilizer for the hip, it has not been until recently that surgeons have realized the importance of its preservation and restoration. Disruption of the capsule during arthroscopic procedures is a potential contributor to postoperative iatrogenic hip instability. In cases of a symptomatic deficient capsule, a capsular reconstruction is mandatory because instability may lead to detrimental chondral and labral changes...

The importance of the acetabular labrum has been well documented for the health and function of the hip joint. Labral reconstruction has proven effective but often requires the use of a cadaveric allograft or auto graft from the fascia lata or gracilis. The indirect head of the rectus femoris is in close proximity with the anterior superior acetabulum, which is the most common site of labral tears. Using the indirect head of the rectus femoris as a local graft minimizes surgical invasiveness by mitigating the need to harvest the graft from a different location, in case of an autograft, and by minimizing donor site morbidity and damage to local tissues...

The source of continued hip pain following fixation of traumatic femoral shaft fracture is not always clear. Intra-articular hip pathology is often overlooked when evaluating the etiology of residual pain. The purpose of this study was to describe cases of intra-articular hip pathology following traumatic femoral shaft fracture. This was a retrospective case series of patients presenting to a private practice orthopedic clinic from 2012 to 2015. Three patients presented with symptomatic intra-articular hip pathology following traumatic ipsilateral femoral shaft fracture...

Although the merits of labral reconstruction have been well established, the technical difficulty of presently used reconstruction techniques-particularly with graft passage and fixation-limit its efficacy and potentiates the risk of iatrogenic damage within the hip joint. The unwieldy nature of a floating labral graft anchored on one end may impede accurate fixation of the other end, which is critical for restoration of the fluid hip seal and preservation of graft integrity. In this technique narrative, we present a "kite technique" for introduction, control, and efficient fixation of a labral reconstruction graft...

The options for labral treatment are debridement, repair, and reconstruction. Debridement of labral tissue is indicated when there is peripheral tearing of the labrum that does not compromise the functionality of the labrum at its base or if the labrum is not playing an important role in the patient's pathology. Labral repair is performed when the base of the labrum is unstable at its attachment at the acetabular rim and the tissue is of otherwise good quality. Labral reconstruction is an option for labral tissue compromised beyond repair, segmental labral defect, or previous failed repair...

Facial profile is an important aspect in physical anthropology, forensic science, and cosmetic research. Thus, facial soft tissue measurement technology plays a significant role in facial restoration. A considerable amount of work has investigated facial soft tissue thickness, which significantly varies according to gender, age, and race. However, only few studies have considered the nutritional status of the investigated individuals. Moreover, no sufficient research among Chinese ethnic groups, particularly Xinjiang population in China, is currently available...

BACKGROUND: Many labral tears are nonrepairable. For these cases, labral reconstruction procedures may be considered in order to restore the joint fluid seal and prolong hip longevity. AIMS: The aim of this study was to describe the clinical and functional outcomes of a series of cases with nonrepairable labral tears that underwent labral reconstruction with tendon allografts. The hypothesis was that labral reconstruction would provide good clinical outcomes. METHOD: A cohort of 20 patients with nonrepairable labral tears, which underwent to labral grafting mainly by means of arthroscopic assisted anterior mini-open approach, were included in this study...

Labral repair has been shown to be an effective treatment option with excellent early outcomes; however, in cases of severe labral damage or when the labral tissue is too large or diminutive, labral repair may be less effective. The purpose of this article is to present a modified technique for hip labral reconstruction using iliotibial band allograft tissue and a front-to-back fixation technique. The described technique is modified from the original report of a technique for arthroscopic labral reconstruction...

Treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) includes correction of underlying bony deformities. Labrum preservation is recommended whenever possible. In hips, where the labrum is missing or damaged beyond preservation, labral reconstruction is an option to restore labral seal. Between 2008 and 2011, 84 hips underwent treatment for FAI by means of a surgical hip dislocation. In 13 of these hips (11 patients), the severely damaged or missing labrum was reconstructed with ligamentum capitis femoris. Pre- and postoperative radiographic and clinical data were analysed with a mean follow-up of 38 months (range: 19-65 months)...

Pincer impingement is often treated by surgical labral separation from the acetabular rim and rim reduction. A more recent technique the so-called 'over the top' involves reduction of the bony acetabular rim without separation of the labrum. Our purpose is to report mid-term results of the 'over the top' technique. Between January 2006 and January 2013 a consecutive series of patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) diagnosis, treated with the 'over the top' technique were included, using the lateral approach...

Facial reconstruction is a technique used in forensic anthropology to identify an unknown person. Various methods used for facial reconstruction are drawings, sculpture and computer aided image building which is mainly based on facial soft tissue thickness measurement. Several methods have been established for measuring facial soft tissue thickness (FSTT) with each one having certain limitations. There is limited data available on FSTT among South Indian population. Hence the present study was ventured to determine the FSTT among South Indian adults and also to find FSTT difference between male and female...

Biomechanical stability is the primary function of the acetabular labrum. It provides a hip suction seal and optimal joint function. Labral tears are a common reason for hip arthroscopy, to improve patient function and to prevent long-term degenerative arthropathy. Arthroscopic labral repair has shown significantly better outcomes in return to premorbid activity levels when compared with labral debridement. Injury to the acetabular labrum is a challenge and can lead to long-term complications. In this scenario, arthroscopic labral reconstruction has shown good results regarding patient subjective and objective outcomes...
